This work is a collection of scenery and tools that I made to populate a scene of a Neanderthal. Neanderthals are still swirled in conjecture since archeologists have found limited information for their culture and history, however, they leave a lot to be inspired by. I utilize the information surrounding them and the info of other hunter-gatherer cultures to create the society from a world I am writing and creating. These simplistic tools and artifacts are relatively similar to historical tools, though retrofitted to my own uses. I work to make these as relatively realistic as possible to help inspire the story I wish to tell, as well as promote others to be inspired and create their own works from this.
