Thomas Huxley illustration bone china mug

This UK-made bone china mug would make a thoughtful gift for anyone interested in the theory of evolution, and is a wonderful way to get your neurons firing as you sip on your morning cup of tea.

 

Inspired by the biologist Thomas Huxley, the mug is part of an exclusive Natural History Museum range featuring the frontispiece illustration on Huxley’s groundbreaking book Man’s Place in Nature.

 

Originally drawn by nineteenth-century English sculptor Waterhouse Hawkins, this iconic image features the skeletons of the gibbon, orang-utan, chimpanzee, gorilla and human - perfect food for thought over a relaxing hot beverage.

A striking and original mug. Its scientific theme makes it an excellent gift for would-be & future biologists.Review by Miss Joanna

This mug is ideal for anyone interested in evolution. It's nice to have authentic drawings taken from original scientific publications reproduced on objects which can be put to practical use. The images are clear, as are the headings and captions. The quality of the bone china is good. (Posted on 25/08/2016)
