Surviving a grazed bullet to the head inspired him to become a 3D forensic designer for Saints

2016-10-02

Cicero Moraes is a well-regarded Brazilian 3D forensics designer. Among his many accolades in this specific field of research, he serves as the vice-coordinator of the Brazilian Team of Forensic Anthropology and Forensic Dentistry
Within a short time frame, Cicero has established himself as a top notch leader in his field of work. His life, however, hit a crossroads before his career even began. 

CICERO MORAES
3D Forensics Designer
"I have always liked scientific research, but I never had the opportunity to work with it.  FLASH I suffered a robbery with my family and I reacted to save them. I ended up taking a grazed shot in the head, the wound was not serious, but I was depressed. To overcome depression, I started to occupy my mind with studies and that's when I chose a career in forensic facial reconstruction.

He considers his brush with death as a life changing experience. After completing his schooling, a unique opportunity presented itself to him, he was asked to forensically reconstruct the skull of St. Anthony of Padua. To date, Moraes and his team of scientist, forensic doctors and artist have not stopped reconstructing the faces of saints. Currently, they have reconstructed the faces of seven saints and two beatified.

"We are currently finalizing the 3D-printed busts of Sor Ana de los Ángeles and Santa Rosa de Lima. We are working in partnership with the Renato Archer (CTI), the development center of the Brazilian Ministry of Science and Technology and the artist Mari Bueno, who will paint the 3D impression based on the digital reconstructions.” 

Cicero has reconstructed the faces of seven saints, including Mary Magdalene, Pauline Visintainer, Luke Belludi, and John Macías.  

Cicero and his team will be presenting the busts in Peru. Recently, he co-authored an e-book with Dr. Paul Miamoto. The book offers a compilation of scientific and forensic insight about 3D Facial Reconstruction. They decided to make the e-book free because they wanted to offer this type of knowledge to those that seek it, as an independent project created specifically for the community.

CICERO MORAES
3D Forensics Designer
"I have enjoyed very much working with the reconstruction of the saints. FLASH Here in Brazil, we will inaugurate an exhibition on the facial reconstruction of all these religious and historical characters, it is called "Faith Faces.” 

For Cicero,working on each saint brings about a different experience, one that he feels he has gained exclusive access to. He believes that his work provides him an opportunity to really get to know the history behind each saint, making it that much more rewarding.
