|1.) In general the judges say about her head:
head and expression or as well often
beautiful head and expression or
the common phrases correct/typical/good head.
|2.) Variations of the summed-up phrases above:
maginificent head and expression,
head in all details,
elegant head with good balance of
skull and muzzle, strong head,
beautiful head with Oriental expression,
all points correct, fitting to her type.
Note: Her prominent
occiput isn't mentioned in any judges' critique. It goes without
saying, doesn't need
a special notice in this broader skulled head type.
