Ibex

ibex chauvet

ORIGINAL ART: IBEX FROM CHAUVET CAVES, FRANCE – 34,000 B.C.E.

Ibex are one of the most frequently seen images in the cave art of Central Europe,both France and Spain. Its elegantly curved and lengthy horns seem exaggerated in some images, but they really were as long as depicted in the era of cave art. We know that the ibex served as a goddess in Iran. Along with the great number of ibex cave images, this speaks strongly of its sacred nature.

The ibex is often depicted as if it is flying. The video below, apparently taken of modern ibex by a Japanese photographer in the 1920’s or 1930’s, shows how, in their leaping from cliff to cliff, the ibex do indeed seem to fly. Watch the video, and it will take you to UTUBE when it is finished. If you want to see it again, come back to this page and click on the image below once again.
