EDIT: Apparantely has been an old thread about him too, not much opinions though.

I think he's Anglo-Saxon. Did someone take a bite out of the end of his nose?

I think he looks very Nordid.

He is very high-vaulted, long-headed. He seems to be a more robust Corded Nordic type.

IMO, pred. Nordid with Cro-Magnid influence.

"semitic" influence in nordic type? What do you think?

Woody is in my opinion Anglo-Saxon (Nordid + Cromagnid + Corded excess).

Doubt Semitic influence, rather Littorid, Lundman suspected Littorid influences in the Northern Netherlands and Jutland (Denmark).

The Litoroid Race in the Bronze Age
Bertil Lundman
Journal of Near Eastern Studies, Vol. 16, No. 2. (Apr., 1957), pp. 105-117.


"The race is known simply as the Armenoid, the litoroid form of which is nothing but the product of a mixture with principally the Mediterranean race."

"Between 2000 and 1200 BC successive waves of these intelligent, determined Armenoid tribes spread along the shores of the Mediterranean, seeking and trading in metals and mingling with other races in the process. Throught the Straits of Gibraltar a number of them continued to southeastern Spain with its wealth of copper, tin, silver, lead, and other metals. Here a secondary center arose from which the quest continued northwards to southern Ireland, where gold used to abound, and possibly to Cornwall with its tin resources (which according to modern research were not fully exploited until a later date, however) and through the straits of Dover to the amber beds of the western shores of Friesland and Jutland. Like the Spanish Conquistadores in America in the sixteenth century, rumors of these riches probably led them on, for mining on a modest scale is probably older than this migratory wave, at least in Spain.
At some of the more important points for mining or maritime trade colonies were probably established, and it is the inhabitants of many of these whose physical characteristics have survived up to the present day in spite of racial mixture and changes in language, religion, and culture."


From my own observation people with this (downtipped) nose in Friesland (Netherlands) are not common, but wouldn't call it untypical either. Most noses I see are straight to convex.
Concave noses are untypical except for females where it is not complete uncommon.

Rutger Hauer is a good example of a Frisian with this type of nose, he can also be compared with Harrelson although the Dutchman is a more robust Anglo-Saxon (he grew coarser on old age, which is probably the reason why most people have him as Faelid/Borreby).

I think so too. To me he looks like an Anglo-Saxon. He has a similar look to James Gurney, the author and illustrator of the Dinotopia books, a former illustrator for National Geographic and, and a set painter. One of my favorite contemporary Artists.

I don't think it's either Semitic or Littoroid, I think it's the result of an injury. Look closely at these two pics. In the first one there is no evidence of a depressed tip and in the second there is clearly a scar across the tip of the nose.

Also, the Armenoid nose has a depressed tip even when the face is in repose. Harrelson and other whites only have a depressed tip when they smile.

Probably right about the tip getting more depressed when the face shows mimic/expression (f.i. when smiling).
Sir Michael Caine (Anglo-Saxon imo) has the same, in neutral position the nose makes a rather straight angle:

While when smiling the tip turns down.

Matthew McConnaughey, same deal (also Anglo-Saxon)

I have been classified as Skandonordic, maybe with some anglo-saxon influence and the tip of my nose becomes slightly depressed when I smile.

On some people it's very noticeable, the very tip is pulled straight downwards as soon as they smile. :-O

BTW, The Black Prince, it is incorrect to refer to a knight as Sir + surname. The proper form is Sir+ first name. So, it's not Sir Caine as you stated in your post, but Sir Michael or Sir Michael Caine

Corrected... I read that name somewhere on a site. In the Netherlands, although we do have baronets (not to be confused with baron), we don't put Sir or something like it before their names.

Interesting, how do you tell they are a baronet, then?

I think there is nothing, except for the higher nobles they are named with their title followed with surname e.g. Prince of Orange, or Graaf Harinxma.
Their are only 6 Dutch 'Erfridder' (baronet) families, I don't know which titulatuur they use.

to compare the entire Dutch Nobility consists off:

Princes: 2 families (Royal house of Orange-Nassau, De Bourbon de Parme)
Graaf (Count): 18 families
Baron: ~100 families

Thanks for the info, Black Prince! :thumbup

I've been studying the pics of Woody which seem to show a scar on the end of his nose and have decided that it's the edge of the cartilage that is showing. This would explain why the tip is pulled downward as the person smiles. The tip being unsupported by cartilage like in most other people can be pulled downward by tension on the skin.

People on my mother's side of the family have a similar look to him.
