    She does fall within the Cro-Magnoid range, as also do many pure Silvids, like it or not.

    When the Silvid mixes with Cro-Magnoid stock, it usually produces a modified though still recognizably Cro-Magnoid type, because there is no reduction.

    However, with Capelloid stock, it creates an obviously mixed type, even in 1/4 or 1/8 proportion, because it is more robust.

    And, one might add, ancestry doesn't always equate well with pheno- or genotype. For example, someone could be 1/16 Negro in ancestry and have a distinctly Negroid influence in his appearance; or he could be 1/4 Negro and you might have trouble noticing Negro features in him. It just depends on whether he has inherited many genes from that particular forbear.

    Amos is a Jewish name isn't it? So perhaps she has Jewish heritage as well. Maybe it's because Silivid approxaminates Litorid. The close spaced eyes especially.

    According to the Oxford Dictionary of American Family Names, it's a fairly common name in Southeast England. Additionally, it was often adopted by Puritans & non-conformists in the 16th and 17th centuries.

    I've seen that same square jawed -- high cheek bones amoung Icelanders when I was in their capital. I wouldn't say she looked all that Southern to me which in the true full-blooded sense is nothing but Celtic / Anglo-Saxon blood anyhow. Typically the presense of Cherokee / Native American does not have that affect at all. Though she could be an a-typical example.

    I would classify her as being the same type as the Icelandic singer Bjork: Give me your opinion. I am thinking she is Icelandic native stock with some Eskimo? To the left is Bjork and the right Toris Amos -- the rest are Bjork. Do you agree or disagree?

    Björk look more Lapponoid. She is almost like a North Lapp, Kackid type, in phenotype closer to Samoyeds. Her phenotype (at least in those photos) look like a proto-Lapponoid or Uralic type.

    Nordenstreng (1926) wrote that some Lapps must have been brought from Norway to Iceland. I think that is the most likely explanation to her exotic look.

    I guess it's not all that suprsingly considering Jewish first names are very common.

    I think Bjork has a Saami influence and it is more evident in some of her pics over others. I debated it in some length with a part Saami fellow one day who disputed it and in the end he agreed that in some of her photos it appears that she does appear to have an influence. (Either that or he got tired of me proving my pint and he just wanted the subject changed. I can be quite stubborn at times. )

    Anyhow, I do not think that Bjork is at all the same type as Tori Amos. Totally different.
