11 PHI MASK Dr Stephen Marquardt
Dr. Stephen Marquardt has studied human beauty for years. He has performed cross-cultural surveys on beauty and has found that all groups have the same perceptions of facial beauty. He has also analyzed the human face from ancient times to modern day. Through he research he has discovered that beauty is not only related to PHI but can be defined for both genders and for all races, cultures and eras with the beauty mask which he developed and patented. The mask uses the pentagon and decagon as its foundation, which embody phi in all their dimensions.
