The position of the face looking to the side is usually called the position of the head in profile. Thus, only one half of the face is visible, located on either side of the symmetry of the body or head of a person.
Often various writers or prominent personalities are depicted in this way in textbooks, and such pictures are also used by sculptors and scientists in preparation for the creation of portrait images, sculptures and portrait busts, for example, ancient Roman ones.
