    That is such a lovely, wistful face. I’m glad Mary chose it.

    Incidentally, ‘abe’ is Danish for ape (or monkey).

    Tell me more about how that thing doesn’t look like Gene Wilder.

    I have seen it compared to the botched “Ecce Homo” in Spain. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/24/world/europe/botched-restoration-of-ecce-homo-fresco-shocks-spain.html

    I’ll second the Gene Wilder suggestion.

    I said it before and I’ll say it again: that monkey looks like a butt.

    Do not forget Alan Tudyk.

    That’s one of those images that strikingly reminds you of our close kinship. It’s just so human, that face.

    And I say again that it looks like a cross between a Greek Orthodox icon and a coco de mer.

    Oddly, Abe Vigoda is not dead, still.

    I thought I was the only one seeing that!

    Gene Wilder, sure I can see that. However, my first impression, especially from the eyes, was of Brad Garrett, the fella who plays brother Robert Barone on Everybody Loves Raymond.

    Draken has now made me redundant.

    I shall henceforth cease posting on Pharyngula.

    (I can see Wilder with a touch of Feldman. You work out the logistics.)

    I’m with Janine – Alan Tudyk. Definitely.

    You are talking about a non-human butt, right?

    That is a hell of a photograph. It may be the most beautiful portrait I have seen all year.

    Damn, I wish I took that shot!
