A unique museum exhibit in Denmark suggests that many ancient Romans were unhappy with the shape and size of their nose، according to "Press TV"، an Iranian news network.
The ‘Nasothek’ collection is a one-of-a-kind group of marble and plaster noses، once added to ancient sculptures to make them look more appealing.
Nasothek is a combination of Latin and Greek words meaning 'Nose Container'. The gallery contains around 156 pieces، mostly noses but also some ears، once attached to ancient sculptures that arrived at the museum.

The noses may all look quite similar، but there are actually many differences to spot.
