These digital illustrations the "art of early man" reveals my fascination with all things related to early man and the discoveries that keeps being revealed daily! Like this one the discovery of Homo naledi. Like many people, I was thrilled at the new unveiling of Homo naledi which they found in a trove of bones in a cave in South Africa. Led by Lee Berger, National Geographic Explorer in Residence who teaches at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa. http://profleeberger.com/ who additionally discovered Australopithecus sediba in 2009.
Some call it the "greatest find in the past half century" because it provided many questions about the origins of humankind. It presented many questions rather than answering them, because apparently, this species disposed of their dead by hiding them. A characteristic of that wasn't seen till allegedly much later. It also had mixed characteristics as a link between Homo and Australopithecus. Like all science, which is about answering questions that it poses, it calls into question everything we know or "thought we knew". To be continued.........
