Curiouser and curiouser ... I would think that groups already
producing lifelike images would be able to recognise a likeness if
shown one ... the Benin of West Africa at the turn of the century or
the Moche of eighth century Peru, for example. Realistic depictions
may be limited to groups identified as chiefdoms or (nascent)
states. This puts an interesting evolutionary spin on this topic. All
speculative, of course ...
