comment Are modern Greeks related to the ancient Greeks?
My point exactly. These busts are created to be pieces of art, not scientific evidence.

comment Are modern Greeks related to the ancient Greeks?
Visual appearance are not conclusive and are often misleading. Besides, how accurately are the ancient Greeks even being portrayed in these busts? For example, the top one, the Townley Discobolus, is a copy of an original, but the head is completely incorrectly positioned. No scientific analysis can be performed from such flawed sculptures.
