[Taxacom] Hominin cranium featured on YouTube

I should add that the artistic rendition comes across as a load of rubbish.
The receded hairline (only humans and orangs) but combined with posteriorly
oriented cranial hair (all primates other than humans and orangs), the
rather fuzzy chin whiskers or whatever they are supposed to be (human and
orang males with well developed mustache and beard) and a gorilla like
nostril to top it off. Artistic renditions represent the propaganda arm of
evolutionary theory (and admittedly I have engaged in it myself).
