Bison Licking Insect Bite

Bison Licking Insect Bite is a prehistoric carving by an unknown artist. Completed sometime between 20,000 and 12,000 BP, it currently resides in the Musee des Antiquites Nationales, St. Germain-en-Laye.

It is carved and engraved on a fragment of a spear-thrower made of reindeer antler. It is literally the figure of a bison with its head turned around biting itself as if bitten by an insect.
