How did humans evolve? Really slowly, for one thing. And also quite elegantly, seen from the right point of view.
A video originally released in 2011, but brought back to our attention by Kottke.org, shows how human faces slowly evolved over more than 7 million years.
It's the work of the Washington State University, the Senekenberg Research Institute and the Natural History Museum in Frankfurt.
It's a haunting but stunning clip, which gets across the complexity of human evolution more completely than a textbook ever could.
