a woman with long hair wearing a head piece made out of beads and other items
This is the face of a person who lived 15,000 years ago. Incredible but right Her remains were found in a limestone cave in France in 1911 and belonged to a woman due to the size of her pelvis. She was named Magdalena's Girl. However, on subsequent x-ray, it was determined that the wisdom teeth were impacted and allegedly belonged to a woman who died between the ages of 25 and 35. Named after her era, the Magdalene Woman has high cheekbones and a mysterious smile similar to that of the Mona Lisa. She lived before the ice age and at a time when the domestication of dogs began. The image of the skull was reconstructed using current technology, and French sculptor Elisabeth Daynes prepared the model based on the technological data.
