Cast of a horse figurine carved out of mammoth ivory belonging to the Magdalenian industry which is associated with early modern humans (Homo sapiens) in southwestern France between c. 17,000-c. 11,000 years ago. It was found in the Hautes-Pyrénées region in France. The original resides at the Musée d'Archéologie Nationale in Saint-Germain-en-Laye in France, while the cast resides at the Field Museum in Chicago but was on loan at the Australian Museum in Sydney when this picture was taken in December 2017.
