Lanzendorf PaleoArt Prize, the most prestigious reward given to artists in science art related to paleontology, in the 3-Dimensional Art category. The Prize was awarded to this very talented and internationally famous paleoartist during the Awards Ceremony for the 70th Anniversary Meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology (SVP), which took place yesterday at the Westin Convention Center, in Pittsburgh, Penn.

With hundreds of anthropological sculptures, Elisabeth Daynès has become a leading expert in the extremely painstaking process of hominid reconstructions. A painter, a sculptor and an expert in comparative anatomy altogether, she combines scientific research, technological innovation and art, in order to bring our human ancestors back to life.  Daynès strives to create a unique and specific early human or pre-human using the scarce information left by the remains of fossils that might be thousands or even a million years old. “Lucy the Australopithecus" and "Flores the hobbit" she created with Prof. Bill Jungers, often described as her finest works, are part of the hundreds of her anthropological sculptures scattered around the world in leading museums along with Toumaï, Australopithecus Her sculptures are famous worldwide and her studio, the Atelier Daynès, has been contacted by many European countries such as Germany, Sweden, Portugal and Spain, as well as many other countries, among which South Africa, Japan, French Polynesia, and Mexico. She increased her international fame in 2006 with the bust of Tutankhamen she reconstructed for the “The New Face of King Tut” exhibition. The exhibition devoted to the young Egyptian pharaoh was a great success in Los Angeles and Chicago and the bust of Tutankhamen was then reproduced on the cover of 25 international issues of the National Geographic.
