He holds a long-handled ladle working in his hands. Behind them, men are activated to feed two furnaces from which issue smoke for melting metal. At the far left is a domesticated dog and a tent camp.

April 18, 1893, the State entrusts Cormon the realization of a decorative ensemble of ten panels wall and a ceiling for the amphitheater of Paleontology and the Museum of Anthropology of Natural History in Paris. Fruit of lengthy documentation and conducting preliminary sketches, the auditorium's decor is inaugurated in 1898 and is still in place today. It presents a series of scenes recreating what one could imagine the early days of humanity in view of new scientific knowledge.
