Lucy has had a makeover, thanks to newly discovered fossils. The reconstruction shows a distinct neck, narrower waistline, and arched foot. Earlier reconstructions, relying on scanty fossil rib bones and living African apes, had given her a cone-shaped thorax and potbelly. But in the past few years, researchers have found additional ribs and a new foot bone of A. afarensis. The ribs are curved, which translates to a barrel-shaped thorax. And the foot bone shows a distinct arch.
