Homo neanderthalensis Krijn, a bust reconstruction. The reconstruction has been made for National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden, The Netherlands, in 2021. Click here to see more images of Krijn and the reconstruction process

We reconstructed the face of Krijn, by mirroring the orbital bone on the cranium of another neanderthal skull; La Chapelle-aux-Saints 1. The mandible and maxilla (upper and down teeth), were completed with parts from Krapina neanderthal

The fossilized orbital bone of the ‘first Neanderthal in the Netherlands’ is some 50,000 to 70,000 years old and was found twenty years ago in Zeeland by amateur palaeontologist Luc Anthonis. The fossil had been removed from the North Sea floor off the Dutch coast with a suction dredger. Examination by experts at Leiden University and the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig revealed that it came from the skull of a young man with a fairly sturdy build (wikipedia)

Illustrations “Extinct Giants” Australia for National Geographic, published in the issue of october 2010.

We travelled to Australia to collect more information about this lost giant megafauna of marsupials. To be able to make realistic paintings we made first 3d models. They helped us to define a proper composition of light and proportions. We made paintings of palorchestes painei, a cow-size marsupial, together with Dromornis stirtoni, Stirton’s thunderbird, a 10 feet tall bird who could not fly. We illustrated Thylacoleo carnifex, a leopard-size marsupial lion, a giant wombat (named Diprotodon optatum), the giant short-faced kangaroo
