Art has evolved over the centuries, transformed lives and has roots in almost every aspect of our existence. Today, we can take the skull of our ancestors and bring them back to life. The skilled hands of an artist can put a face to the people from generations before and help answer our questions about who we are. The term "forensic" comes from the Roman forum where law and politics were debated. It is from this beginning that the word forensic now means anything pertaining to legal proceedings, law enforcement, or debate. It is not surprising that art can also be used forensically with amazing results. Art continues to expand within the world of forensics, where it is now regarded as an essential law enforcement resource for finding criminals and identifying the unknown. The finished product can be a composite sketch of a suspect being sought or a detailed facial reconstruction sculpture of a person who has no name.
