Black Mammoth and Feline

The dominant figure in the panel is a mammoth 2 m high and 1.10 m long. Of the head, which is hidden beneath a thick veil of calcite, we can make out only the vertical trunk and the rounded forehead. The strongly convex hump is more rubbed than drawn. The concave stomach gives the animal an emaciated appearance. The shape of the cave wall has been used to express the volume of the rear leg. This mammoth is accompanied by a black feline whose head is covered by a thick film of calcite. A cave bear has also left a trace of its passage, with the mark of a paw covered in clay.
