Ice Age Lion

Archaeologists from the University of Tübingen in southern Germany have found a fragment of the head of this 40,000-years-old Tübingen Ivory Lion Figurine which proves that it was three-dimensional, not a relief sculpture as long thought. The legless lion, carved from mammoth ivory, was found in 1931. The "new" fragment was found during recent digs in the Vogelherd Cave. For those of you who still believe that Biblical tripe about God creating the universe in six days an estimated 2,000 years ago, think again. This artifact dates from the Ice Age, when modern humans displaced the Neanderthals (CLICK).
