"Nano (dwarf as in nanism) " (see related A), 1564 Valerio Cioli (1529 - 1599) Palazzo Pitti, Florence, Tuscany, Italy

In my oppinion, this sculptor did not faithfully represent the peculiarities of this short stature person - but nonetheless, the prominent forehead and relatively large calvarium concurrent with a retro-flexed (hyperextended) right knee, suggestive of laxity of articular tissues, is sufficient to assert with some degree of certainty, that this individual manifests a connective tissue disorder known as achondroplasia. 

Nano, enano, nanism implies small, little, minimal - from the Greek, nanos.
