I'd seen Josh Kirby's illustration with four actual eyes but I'd assumed that this was one of his occasional liberties with the text, like Conanina's "chain-mail bikini" style of dress ( Angua appears like this on one of the covers for no good reason )
Kirby usually depicts Angua as quite pneumatic, with a distinctly "sculpted" breast-plate, but she is described as being slim and athletic - it's just one of those things

Remembering random sentences I can do, but placing them is another matter ) mention that her breastplate needed to be hammered out in certain places? Along with not being able to wear a helmet because of all of the hair, if memory serves.
Constable Angua had mastered saluting first go. She wouldn’t have a full uniform yet, not until someone had taken a, well, let’s face it, a breastplate along to old Remitt the armourer and told him to beat it out really well here and here, and no helmet in the world would cover all that mass of ash-blond hair but, it occurred to Carrot, Constable Angua wouldn’t need any of that stuff really. People would be queuing up to get arrested.
'Yes.' Twoflower looked worriedly at the wizard over the top of his strange seeing-lenses. 'Will two thousand be sufficient, do you think?'

Terry Prachett in Interesting Times wrote:They invented things. In fact, he recalled, he'd been instrumental in introducing a few of their devices to Ankh-Morpork. Simple, innocent things, like clocks worked by demons, and boxes that painted pictures, and extra glass eyes you could wear over the top of your own eyes to help you see better, even if it did mean you made a spectacle of yourself.
