The Lion Man from Ulm

The origin of art

The Lion Man was discovered inside the Hohlenstein-Stadel cave in the Lone valley near Ulm. Carved from the tusk of a mammoth 40,000 years ago, the ivory figurine combines features of a cave lion with human attributes. This makes the Lion Man one of the oldest and largest sculptures of Ice Age art and the earliest image of a mythical creature in the world.
