Britain Ice Age Art
A mammoth ivory sculpture depicts a man with a lion's head, discovered at Stadel Cave, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany, dates to around 40,000 years ago is seen on display in an exhibition 'Ice Age Art : arrival of the modern mind' at the British Museum in London, Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013. The exhibition presents masterpieces created from the last Ice Age between 40,000 and 10,000 years ago, drawn from across Europe, by artists with modern minds and presented alongside modern works to illustrate the fundamental human desire to communicate and make art as a way of understanding ourselves and our place in the world.
