Can't say that I agree with you there, Wayne.

The attachment is quite small but, from what I can see, all of the important elements are in quite good shape. Eyes, mouth, hair, ears all present.

It is, however, not a "simple" fix. You will need a bit of "artistry" to fill in the blanks on the right side of the face. Depending on you normal workflow, you may find this quite easy or extremely difficult - but it is quite "do-able".

Like I said a few days ago...Just looking at it, you can "see" the original through the damage. Now it's just a case of getting there.
