Darwin’s Cladogram Tree With Finches 3D Printed Object @ Shapeways

Darwin2

Gorgeous object highlighted on the Shapeways blog created from drawings from Darwin’s Cladogram Tree map of the relationship of the finches that were key to the formulation of his theory of evolution:

Whether you’re fascinated by evolution theories or not, check out this amazing replication of Charles Darwin’s first ever sketch of a tree of life by joabaldwin.

The detailed replication pays homage to Darwin’s original sketch found in his private notebook, “Notebook B on the transmutation of species,” 1837-1838.

The finches perched upon the end of each branch represent the A, B, C and D marks on the original drawing. Each is slightly different; the more apart the finches are from each other in the evolutionary tree, the more distinct are the differences between them.

From a side view, the shape of the printed tree mirrors Darwin’s sketch exactly.

This fantastic piece also comes in the form of a necklace.

As taken from Darwin’s notebook itself, “I think … Case must be that one generation then should be as many living as now. To do this and to have many species in same genus (as is) requires extinction. Thus between A & B immense gap of relation. C & B the finest gradation, B & D rather greater distinction. Thus genera would be formed.—bearing relation.”
