    If you don't have the context of where the image was presented you're going to be in trouble. I assume you've clipped the image down to the core and tried reverse google image search? Commented Oct 18, 2013 at 21:43

    This is not a place to ask questions about trivia. Your question does not have any historical significance.

    We do often answer somewhat similar questions, but I fear there just isn't enough information on this one. For all I know some random person got bored and drew this on a whiteboard.

    I think he is either Sherlock Holmes or Vladimir Il'ič Ul'janov. Commented Oct 19, 2013 at 7:12

    @SchwitJanwityanujit No, it's not a perfectly fine question. It's a blurry photo of a projection of a drawing where the head is about maybe 40 pixels wide. The resolution is so low and blurry that this can be pretty much any person in the world. And no context is given. I have to reverse the normal question here and ask who the heck upvoted this, because that makes no sense. Commented Oct 21, 2013 at 3:39

    Good for you for doing the (tough) ID. An explanation of the historical significance would make it even better.
