Facial Features, Continued
The ears are a mass of soft cartilage and flesh. They are wide at the top and
narrow at the bottom, terminating in a fleshy lobe. The middle of the ear is
bowl-shaped and surrounded by whorls and curves of flesh-covered cartilage.
The four major shapes of the ear are the outer rim, the inner rim, the bowl
area, and the lobe.
Figure 3-52 shows the four major shapes of an ear.
