Mechta-Afalou head model. Reconstruction of a Mechta-Afalou head based on fossils found at Afalou in Algeria (1967). These fossils date from 25,000 to 8,000 years ago. The Mechta-Afalou people were a form of early humans (Homo sapiens) that inhabited northern Africa. This model shows the modelled muscles, over which skin layers will be sculpted. Reconstruction by the Daynes Studio, Paris, France.
