What Lucy saw will see, leaving Houston . . .

[The exhibit on Lucy, our Australopithecus afarensis ancestor, has been extended at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, through September 1, 2008. Go. Go see the exhibit. Don’t put it off.]

Coming out of the display on Lucy at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, coming back down the staircase, this is the painting on the wall. In my imagination, this is what Lucy saw will see as they carried carry her, crated up, out of the building. In reality they probably took will carry her down a freight elevator.

This one’s for you, P.Z. — drop into the Houston museum next time you’re down there:
