a portrait...

A portrait is defined as a likeness of a person with the emphasis on the face.  Portraits have most likely existed as long as the human species and are certainly evident in the art of ancient Egypt. Portraits can be drawn carved, painted, molded ad id. Most relevant in this journal entry seems to me that a portrait can be drawn in words, creating by description an enduring likeness with as much power as an oil painting.
