Really gorgeous piece and the picture just doesn't do justice as the details are incredleble. Hope you can get a picture atleast 😉




The woolly mammoth lived during the Pleistocene until its extinction in the early Holocene epoch.
It was one of the last in a line of mammoth species, and its closest extant relative is the Asian elephant.
The appearance and behaviour of this species are among the best studied of any prehistoric animal because of the discovery of frozen carcasses in Siberia and Alaska, as well as skeletons, teeth, stomach contents, dung, and depiction from life in prehistoric cave paintings. Mammoth remains had long been known in Asia before they became known to Europeans in the 17th century.
The origin of these remains was long a matter of debate, and often explained as being remains of legendary creatures.
The mammoth was identified as an extinct species of elephant by Georges Cuvier in 1796.

The woolly mammoth was roughly the same size as modern African elephants.
Males reached shoulder heights between 2.7 and 3.4 m and weighed up to 6 metric tons. Females reached 2.6–2.9 m in shoulder height and weighed up to 4 metric tons.
A newborn calf weighed about 90 kg.
It was well adapted to the cold environment during the last ice age.
It was covered in fur, with an outer covering of long guard hairs and a shorter undercoat, the colour of the coat varying from dark to light.
The ears and tail were short to minimise frostbite and heat loss.
It had long, curved tusks and four molars, which were replaced six times during the lifetime of an individual. Its behaviour was similar to that of modern elephants, and it used its tusks and trunk for manipulating objects, fighting, and foraging.
The diet of the woolly mammoth was mainly grasses and sedges. Individuals could probably reach the age of 60.
Its habitat was the mammoth steppe, which stretched across northern Eurasia and North America.

The woolly mammoth coexisted with early humans, who used its bones and tusks for making art, tools, and dwellings, and the species was also hunted for food.
It disappeared from its mainland range at the end of the Pleistocene 10,000 years ago, most likely through climate change and consequent shrinkage of its habitat, hunting by humans, or a combination of the two.
Isolated populations survived on St. Paul Island until 5,600 years ago and on Wrangel Island until 4,000 years ago.

New Series – Giants of the Ice Age
Megaloceros is an extinct genus of deer whose members lived throughout Eurasia from the early Pleistocene to the beginning of the Holocene and were important herbivores during the Ice Ages.
The largest species, Megaloceros giganteus, vernacularly known as the “Irish elk” or “Giant elk”, is also the best known.
They are thought to be most closely related to the living Dama deer.

The Irish elk evolved throughout the last few million years during the glacial periods and Ice Age, specifically the Pleistocene epoch.
Once established, the elk spread throughout Europe, northern Asia and Africa, and some parts of China.
Physically, the Irish elk was the heaviest known member of the “Old World deer”, a division of the subfamily Cervinae whose groups the “Old World deer” and “New World deer” are distinguished by foot structure rather than geographical origin.
The first Megaloceros giganteus appeared about 400,000 years ago, but most Irish remains date from between 11,750 BP and 10,950 BP.
Over 100 individuals have been found in Ballybetagh Bog, Co. Dublin, the outstanding site known.
Studies have shown they possibly evolved from M. antecedens.
The earlier taxon, sometimes considered a paleosubspecies M. giganteus antecedens, is similar, but had more complex and compact antlers.
