Not in the past, artists and scientists were very intrigued with the anatomy of the human body, its perfection, and its understanding of each part. During the Renaissance, there were several anatomy studies that were at the service of two painters who were looking for perfection in their jobs. These studies will open a door to the mysteries of the human body. And over time, the body continues to fascinate us.

We wanted to contribute to these great minds and find unique body characteristics that few possess. These rare characteristics call our attention and are a label of beauty and diversity that exists in this world. Read on to discover if there are a few people who have unique features.

Widow’s peak

You may have noticed that your hairline forms a V-shaped point in the center of your head, you may have traced it called Viúva’s Peak. Barely 33% of the population is so.

And you are wondering where we see this peculiar name, it dates back to England in the 18th century when certain women wore dark triangular hats whose point fell in the middle of their foreheads.

Arch fingerprint pattern

As Fingerprints identify us in various systems. The only thing about Fingerprints is that 65% of the population have hoops, 30% have fingerprints in the form of the whirl and only 5% have this pattern of a single arch.

Palmaris longus

Palmaris longus is a long muscle of the palm that our ancestors used to climb trees. This muscle is no longer used, but there are people who are still born with it.

If you are curious to know if you have it, place the palm of your hand on a flat surface and touch your thumb with your little finger. You will see this muscle come out of your wrist if you have this rare trait.


This rare feature that makes each eye a different color is called heterochromia. What makes this even more fascinating is that this condition is only present in less than one percent of the population.

Heterochromia can occur when the concentration of melanin in the eyes is not uniform. Most of the time due to genetics.

DEC2 Gene

If you have that friend who always seems to have their energy levels at 100%, even when they sleep poorly, your friend probably has the DEC2 gene. Only 5% of the population has this condition.

A normal person is recommended to sleep at least 7 hours to recover energy, while people with this special trait can sleep between 4-6 hours and feel fresh as a daisy.

People with the DEC2 gene may have faster sleep cycles and get more done during work hours. Great personalities like Leonardo da Vinci and Nikola Tesla had this unique condition.
