Quotable quote

On the role of evolutionary preconceptions in the artist’s human-like depiction of Australopithecus afarensis in National Geographic:

‘I wanted to get a human soul into this ape like face, to indicate something about where he was headed.’

Artist John Gurche, National Geographic, March 1996, p. 109.
