France found bison sculptures that are 15,000 years old and are still in great shape.

Art has always given people ideas and has been around since prehistoric times. Oil paintings or engravings have been found in caves and grottos worldwide. These are the oldest forms of art on Earth. The people of the past left this cultural legacy for future generations. It was influenced by their way of life, the environment, and the animals they saw.

We often find paintings, but we can’t say the same about sculptures. They are the rarest form of prehistoric art because they are either harder to keep in good shape or harder to make. So, when they are found, they will be even more exciting and fascinating. The sculpture of two bison is rare because it has stayed in perfect condition for about 15,000 years.

The extremely rare sculpture was found by accident in 1912 by three teenagers named the Bégouen brothers. Carbon dating showed that these sculptures are 15,000 years old. The find was made in a cave in the French Pyrenees called Tuc d’Audoubert.

The sculptures are about 2 feet long, 18 inches tall, and 4 inches deep. The sculptures are made of clay and stand next to each other on a rock. The artist who created them gave them a wet finish to make them look smooth.
