This week’s featured print is a foot of the hominin, Homo naledi. Like the Homo naledi skull featured a few weeks back in our Biomeditations blog post about artifacts, this foot will be used as a teaching tool for the Introduction to Human Evolution class in the Department of Anthropology. It is intended to help students better visualize the past as well as give them an opportunity to handle objects that would otherwise be too fragile to examine.
Printed in ABS plastic on the Stratasys uPrint SE Plus printer
