Evolution of Man
The story of evolution is told in visual, touchable form with these five figures representing various stages of human development. The set begins with the ape-like Australopithecus afarensis and progresses 2 million years or more to Homo sapiens sapiens, the very wise human.
Scientific Name: Australopithecus afarensis; Homo habilis; Homo erectus; Homo neanderthalis; Homo sapiens sapiens
Characteristics: Each of the five figures represents a specific point in the millions of years of human evolution, and each figure features objects or clothing illustrating the stage of development.
Size and Color: Ranging from the 2 ½ inch tall A. afarensis to the 3 inch tall H. sapiens sapiens, these figures are realistic in scale and texture, as hairy, ape-like bodies give way to more modern facial and body structures.
