Charles Darwin, the English Naturalist and geologist brought us the theory of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended through time from common ancestors. Many years later Sir David Attenborough has explained that he feels the evidence all over the planet clearly shows evolution to be the best way to explain the diversity of life.
Charles Le Brun, a French painter, art theorist and philosopher studied the relationship between facial features and character. In his work, ’’Treatise on facial expression,’’ Le Brun painted surprising images showing what humans would have looked like if they had directly evolved from different animals. The results are fascinating. Do you recognise anyone?
