The Bison is based on a carving made from reindeer antler roughly 14,000 years ago and discovered in 1863 in the Dordogne region of France. The carving was once known as The Wounded Bison, but archaeologists now believe the animal depicted is more likely to be grooming than injured.

In the first quarter of 2013 the British Museum had an exhibition called Ice Age Art, the arrival of the Modern Mind.  This statuette was supplied to the British Museum for their shop as a specialist item for duration of this exhibition.  

The Bison is approximately 6½ inches (16cm) tall and weighs approximately 400g.

Your Bison is one of 365 and comes with it's own certificate of authenticity.
