Cicero “the perv” Moraes: dead woman’s boobs posted on Commons

And when you meet him, you excuse yourself quickly, leave the room, and distance yourself socially from anyone and everyone who knows him. If it’s a job interview, you quietly cross this company off your list.
Cicero Moraes is this kind of guy, the kind of guy who doesn’t know the difference between a face and a boob.
But when Cicero Moraes did a reconstruction of “Eva de Naharon” a Mexican woman found in a cave who died with a fractured spine some 13,000 years ago, he thought it was just fine to imagine what her boobs looked like, draw them onto her image, and donate it to Commons.

Perhaps your confusion between perverts and people with social interaction deficit prevented you from noticing what seemed to me a more significant feature of the reconstructed Eva de Naharon. Not only did the 80% complete skeleton allow Moraes to guess at what her breasts looked like, it also appears to have told him that she was white. Considering that the current anthropological debate is over whether the skeletons bear more resemblence to people from north or south Asia, presenting her as Caucasian seems a curious choice to make. Perhaps it’s more to do with the interaction between race and politics in Latin America than it is to do with boobs.
