In ancient era, people paid attention to draw accurate portray of the gods, they drew the contour of profile and the straight eye that reflects the depths of the heart. While it was not geometric realism, it could be a true method of the impression.
We know Sesshu made a sumie (Japanese ink painting) to describe Dharma by this way.
