Here is an illustration about the meeting between two gorgeous species of the genus Homo : Sapiens and Neanderthal. A unique, delightful, captivating, and irresistible meeting, which gave us Europeans such a rich and dense genetic heritage.
I couldn’t resist drawing this without symbolizing the spear : the common hunt. Feathers : the beginnings of creativity of the Neanderthals, and their cultural appropriation.
I would’ve liked to show other aspects of them : nudity. But it didn’t really suit with their way of life… was really cold out there.
Anyway, thank you to my father, my cousin, my brother Neanderthal, son of Europe and cold. My feather is yours now.
