Origin of Species Collection: Lucy (Australopithecus) Skull Sculpture
 
An ancient Australopithecus skull stands in to echo the controversy of Darwin's theories of natural selection, early ancestors and the beginnings of man in this Design Toscano exclusive. Found by anthropologist Donald Johanson in 1974 at Hadar, Ethiopia, Lucy, a 3.2-million-year-old Australopithecus afarensis is faithfully reconstructed in this replica skull. Cast in quality designer resin with a distressed and antique finish, it is set atop an ebony metal mount for proud display in library or office. A quality collectible and a smart, scientific gift! Simple assembly required.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Wrong dimensions The dimensions of "Lucy" are not correct. I suggest the maker of this model should bought a museum quality "Lucy" skull and measure all the dimensions and use them to construct this model of "Lucy" skull. February 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have purchased a number of items over the years and plan on remaining a customer. I enjoy the whimsical and Lucy, certainly "fills the bill"; I appreciate having a replica of the "mother" of us all. It is also a reminder that we all wear our skeletons with us constantly and of the frailty of life. Thank you for your service. Marvin December 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lucy made the first day of school! In our classroom we study ancient civilizations. We start with the Stone Age and learn of the discovery of Lucy, the 3.2 million year old Australopithecine. Lucy greeted my students on the first day of school and the students truly enjoyed her and all of the other Toscano collection pieces I have collected throughout the years. Lucy looks great for her age and her story went home with all of my students at the end of the day. It always makes my day when students think that the Toscano piece is the actual artifact from Ancient History. Thank you Toscano, for making my classroom unique and special for students.
