Cave painting of a mammoth. Artwork of a prehistoric cave drawing from the cave of Font-de Gaume, in the Dordogne region of France. It shows a mammoth (Elephas primigenius). The paintings in these cave date back to the time of the Magdalenian people, during the Upper Paleolithic period from 18,000 to 11,000 BC. Archaelogical research has shown that the Magdalenian diet consisted largely of meat often obtained from hunting big game. Artwork from the 1913 edition of Prehistoric Times (Sir John Lubbock).
