We often understand and perceive the past of humanity through material remains, but what the people who created a certain culture looked like, is mostly unknown. Even though archaeologists have excavated tens of thousands of skeletal remains, so far only a few dozen face reconstructions have been conducted, in the form of sculptures.
Our scientists, led by professor Sofija Stefanović, were the first in the history of humanity to reconstruct the exact facial expressions and realistic emotions of people who lived many years before us. Prehistoric MetaHuman is, in fact, a biokinetic model of the face of a man who lived on the territory of Serbia, on Lepenski Vir, 10,000 years ago. This model was created using Digital Ancient People technology, which integrates several state-of-the-art scientific methods such as ancient DNA analysis and forensic facial reconstruction to replicate their appearance and movements based on ancient skeletal remains. 3Lateral, part of Epic Games, participated in development of MetaHuman technology that helped to virtually revive prehistoric man from Lepenski Vir.
