Seller: emilbal-y0jmlc4z (376) 100%, Location: Clacton-on-Sea, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 174167839379 Here is a Sublime Upper Paleolithic/ Mesolithic Rock Art Animal Profile Stone. This animal profile stone has been cleverly modified and looks to be a wolf or dog I have discovered various other upper Paleolithic/mesolithic rock art Animal Profile Stones featuring wolves and dogs some of this rock art has an almost abstract feel about it from my finds in which I have discovered very basic rock art to very complex designs the original form of the stone has a lot to do with the intended outcome. Early humans would have compared similarities of what the stone in its natural form resembled and would have taken it from here by either breaking the stone and again modifying within the fractures or simply adding simple modifications to a flint Nodule. I have discovered amazing naturally formed stones that look like a human head fpr instance and just the features have been modified to represent a human profile. I believe that modified Flint nodules were possibly the first type of art to represent identity and the shattered modified art came after through progression whether by accident or deliberate means yet both types of art still rely heavily on natural forms that all ready resemble a particular identity whether human or animal which are certainly the highest types of stones to be modified. This example also has other features like most upper Paleolithic/Mesolithic art they quite often have various works of art within see pic 6 which resembles a goat on the right hand side of the picture. This was discovered within deep north seabed dredge material that was dredged from an area that forms the southern north sea which was once dry land now known as doggerland. Doggerland was a vast plain larger than the uk and was populated by early human species and mesolithic hunter gatherers. Various animals once lived on doggerland including some extinct species such as the woolly mammoth and woolly rhino to name just a few Sadly doggerland was slowly submerged due climate change at the end of the last ice age a mega tsunami also struck here which would have devastated the land which now makes up the north seabed. Within the dredge material from doggerland i have discovered evidence of those who once lived here including flint tools, worked bone, rock art and pottery various bones and teeth of animals including extinct species.
