The author describes over a period of five thousands years the evolution of the esthetical criteria of the artists, painters and sculptors who have represented the nasal pyramid. Starting from prehistorical times to great civilisations: Roman and Greek, then to the age of the Renaissance, and to end in the modern times with impressionism, cubism and surrealism. As a conclusion, he draws a parallel between rhinoplasty and the different technical evolutions, according to the esthetic patterns of the rhinoplasticians and the different human qualities they should have to master this technique.
