The sculpture known as the 'Swimming Reindeer' was created at least 13,000 years ago and shows male and female reindeer with their heads raised and legs extended. Carved from the tip of a mammoth tusk, the depiction is remarkable.
The Swimming Reindeer offers us a glimpse into an Ice Age society and allows us to discover an exciting and previously unexplored world of art.
