Homo habilis is an extinct species of archaic human from the Early Pleistocene of East and South Africa, dating from about 2.3 to 1.6 million years ago (mya). The first fossils were discovered in 1959 and 1960 at Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania by Louis Leakey and his team¹². The name Homo habilis means “handy man” or “skillful man”, reflecting the association of the fossils with simple stone tools, known as Oldowan, that were also found at the site³ . Homo habilis is considered to be the most ancient representative of the human genus, Homo, and a possible ancestor of later humans, such as Homo erectus and Homo sapiens.

This product is a digital reproduction of a vintage lithograph of Homo habilis, made with the lithography method. Lithography is a planographic printing process that makes use of the immiscibility of oil and water. The printing is from a stone (lithographic limestone) or a metal plate with a smooth surface. It was invented in 1796 by the German author and actor Alois Senefelder and was initially used mostly for musical scores and maps . Lithography can produce detailed and subtle artwork with a range of tones.
