Researchers and artists have reconstructed the face of a teenage girl who lived 12,000 years ago in Mexico were recovered from an underwater cave on Yucatan Peninsula. Naia is regarded as one of the earliest known residents of the Americas but her skull has a shape associated with African or South Pacific populations rather than the typical Siberian look. Today, contemporary Mexican artist Enrique Cabrera brings NAIA back to life through his sculpture, this is one of the most important projects in his career as a Plastic Artist due to the great social and cultural impact that it represents on the history of humanity.
Being a watershed at the beginning of life in America and this positioned his country in the magnifying glass of the experts in a way like very few sculptural projects ever carried out before, “the idea of sharing this project with the world is a great effort to raise awareness among Mexicans that in each destination of our country we have a lot to learn, exploit and publicize the history of life on our planet”
