Lifelike reconstructions of our earliest ancestors – human history as you’ve never seen it before. The Hominins Collection by John Gurche gives collectors a unique opportunity to get up close with our earliest ancestors and learn about human evolution. The collection consists of 12 painstakingly researched faces, eight of which are on display in the Smithsonian Institution’s Hall of Human Origins.
