Minion Cro-Minion Funko POP
From Minions, Cro-Minion, the Cro-Magnon of the Minions as a stylized Funko POP. This Minion is on a mission, from the Minions’ Cro-Minion movie, this adorable yellow creature is too cute to resist. Minions Cro-Minion Funko POP is a pretty nice figure, the detail in the hair with the bone is well done, as is the detail in the goggles and loin cloth. Cro-Magnon man is an ancient form of Homo Sapiens, ascribable to modern human populations, widespread in the Upper Paleolithic in Europe. It is represented by four skeletons from the Cro-Magnon rock shelter, found in 1868 at Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil in the Dordogne and by seven skeletons collected in the Balzi Rossi Caves (Liguria, Italy), defined at the time as cromagnonoids. The earliest known Cro-Magnon remains are between 35,000 and 45,000 years old, based on radiometric dating. The oldest remains, from 43,000 – 45,000 years ago, were found in Italy and Britain. Other remains also show that Cro-Magnons reached the Russian Arctic about 40,000 years ago.
Cro-Magnons had powerful bodies, which were usually heavy and solid with strong muscles. Unlike Neanderthals, which had slanted foreheads, the Cro-Magnons had straight foreheads, like modern humans. Their faces were short and wide with a large chin. Their brains were slightly larger than the average human’s is today. The name “Cro-Magnon” was created by Louis Lartet, who discovered the first Cro-Magnon skull in southwestern France in 1868. He called the place where he found the skull Abri de Cro-Magnon. Abri means “rock shelter” in French, Cro means “hole” in the Occitan language, and Magnon was the name of the person who owned the land where Lartet found the skull. Basically, Cro-Magnon means “rock shelter in a hole on Magnon’s land“. This is why scientists now use the term “European early modern humans” instead of “Cro-Magnons”. At the end etymologically the term “Cro-Magnon” means nothing.
