Thomas Huxley illustration set of 4 coasters

Add an element of scientific history to your kitchenware with this set of four coasters.


Each features a skeleton taken from the iconic illustration in Thomas Huxley’s groundbreaking book Man’s Place in Nature, drawn by nineteenth-century English sculptor Waterhouse Hawkins.


Featuring a gibbon, gorilla, and a human on separate coasters, and the chimpanzee and orang-utan on another, these coasters would make a thoughtful addition to any home.
