How many faces do you recognise?

Post by diamondlil » Thu January 29th, 2009, 10:19 am

I was sent this in an email and thought it might be fun to post here.

Apparently there are 100 famous faces, both historical and contemporary, shown in this picture. How many can you name?

I saw a few I recognized but the image is just too small for my eyes to look at very long.

I can see a few! Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Abraham Lincoln for starters. There are a few whose faces I recognise but can't quite put a name to. :o

I recognised a few aswell, I saw Lincoln, Napoleon, I think Leonardo Da Vinci, Mao, Einstein, Genghis Khan.
Maybe if I had a longer and closer look I'd recognise some more.

I noticed quite a few but I agree the pic is way too small.

Mao, Lincoln, Ghandi, Castro, Queen Victoria (?) Marlon Brando, Plato, Shakespeare, Stalin, Lenin, George Carlin, Arafat, Prince Charles, Hitler, Shirley Temple...

Where's Marylin? I didn't find her.

Is that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson leaning on that wall?
