Caption: Australopithecine reconstruction work. Reconstruction by Christine Berge (centre) and Elisabeth Daynes (left) of the Lucy and Lucien, two specimens of Australopithecus afarensis. Lucy (female) 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. Lucien (male) is based on the fossil skull AL-444, found in Ethiopia in 1991. This work is being carried out by the Daynes Studio, Paris, France.
