The purpose of this study was to investigate in three dimensions the differences in face form between Filipino females, who belong to Sundadont, and Japanese females, who belongs to Sinodont, using moiré Topography.
The Subjects were 70 adult Filipino females of ages 17-38 years and 70 Japanese females of ages 14-24 years.
The width, height and depth of each facial part were measured and statistically compared.
1. The Japanese females had a broad and long middle face and a long nose, whether relatively or absolutely. The Filipino females had long mouths, broad noses, and large and protruding lips. These lip features are also identified in the Negroid, and are thought to be an adaptation to Southern migration.
2. Though a few items were large in the right face, the left face was relatively large in the Japanese female. In the Filipino female, no items were large in the right face and most were large in the left face. There seemed to be tendency for the left face to be large in general, although there was some difference between the groups.
