Tarzan the Ape Man in Paris!

I came across this article in the New York Times about an exhibit in Paris at the Musee du Quai Banly devoted to Tarzan. His life, myth and character are examined (yes, examined!) through old comics, film clips, faux jungle sets and children’s action figures. Maybe a bit much, but interesting none-the-less. I did find this one image from the NYT article that I just had to pass along.

This is an 1871 engraving entitled Man is Descended From the Apes by Georges Labadit, showing an ape reading Darwin. Mmmmmhhhhh! Makes one wonder .....
