This is the original Gouache painting by Harry Green.

A scientist studies the skull of the alleged Piltdown Man. In 1912, the amateur archaeologist Charles Dawson claimed that he had discovered the "missing link" between ape and man.

In fact pieces had been glued together from some teeth and the lower jaw of an orang-utan and a small human skull. The hoax was not discovered until 1953.

Art published in the World of Wonder Annual 1973.
