The Jane Austen Centre in Bath has unveiled what experts believe is an accurate likeness of the world-famous author. The model is the culmination of forensic research, eye-witness accounts, and a costume designer.

De BBC schrijft: Melissa Dring, FBI trained forensic artist, said she used the small pencil and watercolour sketch that Cassandra made, as a "starting point" for her pastel portrait, which was then developed into the waxwork.....we know from all accounts of her that she was very lively, very great fun to be with and a mischievous and witty person."
