An epic look at early humans

Illustration for article titled An epic look at early humans

We love this stately museum poster. These early humans look like they could be our ancestors Homo erectus, or maybe Homo habilis. It's a reminder that our species is always changing, but one thing stays the same: We always look awesome when posed with wild elephants.


Paleoartist Mauricio Antón writes that the images are intended to "recreate the life and habitats of our prehistoric relatives in East Africa, with an emphasis on Northern Tanzania." He has also just released a book on human evolution, packed with gorgeous images, called The Cradle of Humankind (the same name as the exhibit he illustrated for this poster).
