Honest rube or clever con? You decide with this original acrylic on large wood panel. Charles Dawson, an amatuer archaeologist, claimed to have discovered the ‘missing link’ between primates and humans with a section of skull he had found in Sussex, England in 1912. This magnificent find turned out to be one of the most sophisticated scientific frauds in archaeological history, covered by tabloids and pulp fiction such as the issue that this sign advertises. An interesting tale for any guest that happens upon this piece of décor.
