My Cro-Magnon Beauty



My friend in North France believes her jaw is too wide, but I believe a rounder face is more beautiful than one with small mouth and markedly pointed chin. The wider face was believed to be that of the Cro-Magnon woman much loved in France by Neanderthal man. She is an artist, and Cro-Magnon people were artists as well as hunter-gatherers. Sadly, artists do not reconstruct skulls to flatter prehistoric humans according to modern standards of beauty.  My Frankish friend also says her coworkers made fun of her because we are friends, and they see me as an old man. It is true that we are friends, meaning “free.” And I am actually much older than they think, nearly 200,000 years old
