El rostro (The Face)

From the Spanish book Magia blanca moderna o sea Magnetismo, hipnotismo, sugestion y espirtismo (Modern White Magic that is Magnetism, Hypnotism, Suggestion and Spirituality) by Q.G. Polinntzieu, published by Barcelona Maucci in 1899.

"The nobility of character is always revealed from the forehead to the nose, by the proportion and symmetry of this part of the face..."


This is the face of the ambitious.


This is the face of the perverse.


This is the face of the hedonist.


This is the face of the distracted.


This is the face of the imposter.


This is the face of the heroic.


This is the face of the prideful.


This is the face of the miserable.


This is the face of the cunning.


This is the face of the considerate.


This is the face of the honest.


This is the face of the cruel.

The Imposter is really Ambitious.
Or else the Ambitious is really an Imposter. I'm betting on the latter.
