A major new ticketed exhibition is set to open shortly in London. Ice Age art: arrival of the modern mind runs 7th February – 26th May 2013 at The British Museum. This is art from before Gobekli Tepe, art… “created between 40,000 and 10,000 years ago”.

To whet your appetite, here’s my macro picture (above, taken at the British Museum) of the the earliest known art in the British Isles. The shape of an Ice Age horse’s head, with a mane etched across the top. Found at Robin Hood Cave at Creswell Crags in Derbyshire.
