Ancient Ancestors Come to Life at the Smithsonian

“The human story is really nothing short of the story of a little corner of the universe becoming aware of itself.” From National Geographic, paleo-artist John Gurche creates realistic human likenesses of our ancient ancestors. You can see them almost come to life at the Smithsonian’s Hall of Human Origins.

In the archives: more history, more humanity, and more evolution.
