Dawn of Woman

Dawn of Woman

This sketch shows, in a fairly cartoon-like style, how a typical Homo sapiens woman might have looked between 200-100 thousand years ago, when our species was just getting started and hadn’t migrated out of Africa yet. If her outfit looks a little skimpy, it’s because she’s living in a hot savanna environment. Given our evolution in that tropical climate, I personally believe humans invented clothing not for warmth but for aesthetic decoration. We’ve always been an artistic species that liked to show off, which is also why we invented makeup, jewelry, and eventually plastic surgery.
