Putting A Face On Homo Naledi says
When news of a new hominin splashed across the headlines recently, the world was able to get a sense of what Homo naledi looked like thanks to internationally renowned paleoartist John Gurche.

During this special evening, Gurche will share the extraordinary process he uses to create forensically accurate and hauntingly realistic representations of our ancient human ancestors, and particularly how he came to be directly involved with the Homo naledi project.

Inspired by a lifelong fascination with all things prehistoric, Gurche has studied fossil remains, comparative ape and human anatomy, and forensic reconstruction for over three decades. Gurche is artist in residence at the Museum of the Earth in Ithaca, New York. His murals, illustrations, and models have been seen around the world in museums, publications, and films.
