The Human Ancestors Who Walked the Earth Millions of Years Ago Make Their Debut on the Blockchain
The era of simple bored ape, come to an ends. not going anywhere, but getting involved even further back from the stone age. Introducing the world first NFT’s featuring the main ancestors of human evolution, in form of collectible series of 12, named the Hominins Collection.
This historical accuracy of the collection is state-of-the-art. Created by internationally renowned evolutionary artist John Gurche, eight of the 12 are the same hominins on exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution’s Hall of Human Origins. The other four were produced for covers of National Geographic magazine. Now these primitive and more modern humans, subtly animated to appear even more realistic, can be seen up close outside the museum context, whether at home or a business.
Gurche’s artistic reconstructions of early hominins are also exhibited at the Field Museum and the American Museum of Natural History, among others. He been worked for nearly three decades of study of perfecting great ape and human anatomy, as well as study of original hominin fossils in Africa and Europe takes 700 hours of research and reconstruct. Gurche is currently artist-in-residence at the Cornell University-affiliated Museum of the Earth in Ithaca, New York.
“This NFT collection, my first, is an opportunity to reach new audiences, especially young people, who are curious about the fascinating story of human evolution as we understand it,” said Gurche. “Realism has always been important to me with my reconstructions, and now the TID team has taken them a step further with their wonderful animations, bringing them fully to life.”
This includes 12 of the just over 20 known species of primitive and more modern humans that established before Homo sapiens, rancing from Sahelanthropus tchadensis, approximately seven million years ago, to Homo neanderthalensis, from 400,000 to 40,000 years ago.
