Caption: Reconstructing Australopithecine Lucy. French sculptor Elisabeth Daynes of the Daynes Studio, Paris, France, working on a reconstruction of the Lucy specimen of Australopithecus afarensis. Lucy was found in the Afar region of Ethiopia between 1973 and 1977. She dates from 3.3 million years ago, and is one of the earliest links in the human fossil record. She is shown walking on fossil footprints that were discovered in 1976 in Laetoli, Tanzania.
