This 90-second time-lapse of the evolution of the human face is mesmerising


We look in the mirror daily, but next time you catch a glimpse of your face, stop for a second and think about all the millions of years of evolution that have gone into shaping it. Seriously… just try to imagine it. It can be pretty mind-numbing, right? So to help you wrap your head around it a bit better, palaeo-artist John Gurche has created this 90-second time-lapse that takes you on a visual tour of just how far we’ve come as a species, focussing specifically on modern anglo-saxon faces.
