My restoration of the Leiden bust of Caesar

This is my "digital restoration" of the Leiden bust. Actually, this is one of  two marble heads of Caesar that we can see at the page http://www.rmo.nl/onderwijs/museumkennis/klassieke-wereld/romeinen/de-voorwerpen/julius-caesar . The Rijksmuseum van Oudheden is the national archaeological museum of the Netherlands. It is located in Leiden.

For the restoration of the face I used that of the Tusculum bust.
Actually "rectangles" are coherent (see the discussion in this post)
