The new traveling exhibition will feature replicas and images of specimens from the Smithsonian’s “David H. Koch Hall of Human Origins” in Washington, D.C., including a reproduction of this bronze statue created by John Gurche of a curious two-year old Homo neanderthalensis learning from his mother. “Exploring Human Origins: What Does It Mean to Be Human?” was developed by the Smithsonian Institution and American Library Association and will appear at 19 public libraries across the country between April 2015 and April 2017.
