Bovine ...... pin                                                                                  


 

 

 

A mysterious prehistoric people carved & painted various cave walls in southern France.  When seen today it is quite clear that these artists intimately understood their animal subjects.  In La Madeleine, a cave in the Dordogne river valley a few sculptured functional objects were found.   A counter weight for a spear thrower carved as a Bison with a backward gaze peaked my interest and inspired this Bovine pin.
