Wooly Mammoths

wolly mammoths facing Rouffignac

ORIGINAL ART:  WOOLY MAMMOTHS, ROUFFIGNAC, FRANCE – 22,000 B.C.E.

The wooly mammoth roamed over all of central Europe as well as the American continent. It became extinct somewhere around 22,000 BCE, which was roughly the time that much of the cave art was created. The mammoth is one of less common figures in the European caves, and one reason may be that there were few, if any mammoths around except in legend and memory by the time much of the art was done.

Another element that supports this view is that the caves of Chauvet in France show some thirty-six wooly mammoths, more  than all of the other caves put together. Since Chauvet is at least 10,000 years older than any of the others, there would have been more mammoths impacting the lives of these artists.
