Sculpture inspired by the Ice Age
Many of the sculptures of animals in Ice Age art are depicted in still positions. The Crouching Lion from Pavlov I is a fine exception. Discovered in 1952 close to the Upper Palaeolithic archaeological site near the village of Dolní Věstonice, Moravia in the Czech Republic, this sculpture carved from mammoth ivory depicts a lion in motion; crouching or, more likely, leaping. Also known as the Pavlov Lion, it was discovered in a pile of bones next to a wolf skull and just metres from a hearth. Most of the lion’s outline has been cut and rounded, but parts have been left unworked.
