    Classify Croatian Pianist Ivo Pogorelich

    http://www.bach-cantatas.com/Bio/Pogorelich-Ivo.htm

    This is beyond my very limited profiling skills, so i'm going to abstain from making an attempt. Is this look typical at all for a Croatian? His mother was Serbian apparently.

    I'm no expert, but he looks like he's got some Mongolid blood in him.
    Look at the eye shape and the cheek bones.

    I've seen many and known several Croats and he looks exotic for a Croat.

    Looks like someone from the steppes of Siberia. A mixture of Slav and Mongolid.

    I'd say Eastbaltid - Mediterranid.

    No common look for Croatians. Osteuropid traits are more common, but no extreme Eastbaltid ones which are at work here (rather standard Baltid). The typical Croat is a (region-) specific Dinarid-Alpinid or Dinarid-Alpinid-Baltid mixture in my opinion, though all European racial forms occur of course, Mediterranid probably more around the sea, in Dalmatia...

    I would agree with East Baltid.

    The extent of dinarization in Croatia is I believe overstated in the literature. I have been there several times in Makarska, Split and Dubrovnik for summer holidays and I see a wide variation of phenotypes ranging from Med, Alpine, Dinaric, Noric, Nordid and Borreby. it is sometimes hard to tell who are the tourists and who are the locals.
