Oscar Nilsson

The partial skull used to reconstruct the face of this man was discovered with other human crania and animal jawbones that had been deposited in a Swedish lake around 6,000 B.C. The artist who reconstructed this man chose to give him a cape made from wild boar—one of the animal species also found in the lake.
