The artistic representation of a persons profile and personality has been around for centuries. It’s called the portrait. Portraits come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, textures and places making them extremely personalized. Take a look at this:

It says a lot about this person, and we don’t even know who she is! These portraits were hung in homes, and stayed there for centuries until it was either sold to a museum, passed on to family members, destroyed in war, etc.

What this portrait is missing is an integral part to what was the norm back then: a frame. It looked more like this on one’s wall:
