Font de Gaume Reindeer


This is a reproduction of a pair of reindeer from the famous cave of Font de Gaume in the Dordogne region of France, as I imagine they might have looked freshly painted 17,000 years ago. Iron oxide and carbon black are blown and hand-painted onto the stone, then I carve in details, recreating in miniature the art techniques of the first artists.
