Summary

Reconstruction of a Neanderthal child

Made by research team from Anthropological Institute, University of Zürich

Christoph P.E. Zollikofer, Zürich — 3D skull reconstruction

Some people claim that this image is "incredibly human." However, according to Christoph P.E. Zollikofer, it was made using modern techniques of computer-assisted paleoanthropology from the Gibraltar 2 Neanderthal specimen discovered by Dorothy Garrod at Devil's Tower, Gibraltar in 1926. Tomographic scanning was used to convert the remains into a computer model, from which a physical model was constructed using a stereolithography apparatus. Soft tissue was then extrapolated using a thin plate splining technique originated in 1991.
