Sculpture

Tiny mammoth sculpture

Late last month, German archeologists announced the discovery of intricate figurines that were made around 35,000 years ago. Made from mammoth ivory, the beautiful carvings include a mammoth and a lion. Recall from June 27's post--the oldest human jewelery/artwork has been dated to 82,000 years ago. These 35,000-year-old animals, the mammoth especially, look like they might have been made yesterday.
