We could see that these two Paleolithic East Asians are different from modernday East Asians. They seem to have more protruded eyebrows and larger eyes. They seem to show some degrees of affinity with Australoid or even Negroid populations (I hate to use these "-oid" words, but I have no other means to describe them).

Facial reconstruction of Upper Cave 101 Man. His appearance is also different from modernday East Asians. I think he looks somewhat like Inuit or Ainu.

Couldn't agree more.

So would you say the variety displayed by the South East Asians is greater than that displayed by the North East Asians purakjelia?

The Ainu people of course stand out from rest of the Japanese/North East Asians. I think very few of them are left now. Their language is also almost extinct.

Here are a few images of the Ainu.

Facial reconstruction of a Zhenpiyan woman, dated approximately 10000 BP. Her skull is found in Guangxi province in Southern China. She seems to have some Negroid features.

That's what the anthropologists and geneticists are saying. They say that Indians and Southeast Asians display greater variety than Northeast Asians, therefore they must be the older population. The highest diversity among modern humans is found in Africa.

The second-stage of development is Neolithic, about 10000 BP to 5000 BP. The Neolithic East Asian appearance seemed to be closer to modernday East Asian than their Paleolithic counterparts, though not yet quite close. The Neolithic Yangshao peoples in Central China seemed to look like Malays or Southeast Asians, while the Neolithic Dawenko people seemed to look somewhat like Polynesians.

The Hemudu site was found in Zhejiang province in Eastern China, dated back to 7000 BP. There were extensive rice cultivation among the Hemudu people, since the remains of rice seeds had been found in that site. The Chinese scientists tested the Y-chromosome haplogroup of these Neolithic farmers, and they found that most Hemudu people belong to O1-M119, which is a haplogroup that is typically associated with Austronesians. Here are the facial reconstructions of Hemudu man and woman. I think they look like Malayo-Polynesians.

Facial reconstructions of Yangshao man and woman, approximately 5000 BP. The Yangshao Neolithic farmers are regarded by some people as the ancestors of Huaxia Han Chinese, though this is still under debate. The woman seemed to have some East Asian appearance, but that man looked like Southeast Asian.
