The Ethiopia Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will celebrate an important chapter in human history by displaying a replica of the oldest human skeleton called Lucy.

Lucy’s skeleton, estimated to be 3.2 million years old, is known locally as “Denkench”, which means “you are wonderful” in Amharic. This discovery in northeastern Ethiopia in 1974 rewrote the history of human evolution, earning the country its reputation as the “cradle of humanity According to Sky News.

Throughout its rich history, Ethiopia has succeeded in preserving its authenticity, culture and values, and its pavilion at Expo 2020 will highlight these distinctive qualities throughout the 182-day period of the international event.

Visitors to the Ethiopia pavilion begin their tour, like early humans, in a dimly lit cave, then travel through the country’s prehistoric history, ending in a modern factory highlighting the country’s contemporary achievements in industry.

The Lucy replica is a stunning addition to the collection of cultural attractions that the 191 participating countries intend to display during the Expo 2020 Dubai period.
