Human identification from a skull is a critical process in legal and forensic medicine, especially when no other means are available. Traditional clay-based methods attempt to generate the human face, in order to identify the corresponding person. However, these reconstructions lack of objectivity, since they depend on the practitioner. On the other hand, superimposition of a skull with antemortem photographs is another popular method for suggesting individual identification; nevertheless, it is a costly process in terms of time if many photographs have to be analyzed.
