Okay, okay, laugh if you must.  You're making me feel like Falstaff -- "the
cause that wit is in other men." All I know is what I read in the newspapers.
 
Yours, Bill

Given the uniformity of stylistic conventions in Elizabethan portraiture, etc.,
the identification of 17 points of similarity is unsurprising.  I suspect one
would find as many points of similarity between any number of portraits,
including Shakespeare, the Earl of Oxford, Francis Bacon, and Christopher
Marlowe . . . Hey, now there's an idea . . .  Also, comparison of portraits and
casts is quite different from comparison of photographs and casts.
