Britain's oldest identifiable art?

A very brilliant example of #paleolithic stone #sculpture, and representation, A very well defined #elephants head.This stone holds other motifs such as the bird, ape face, and suspected #hominid faces. This flint shows an interesting pattern of cortex removal chips, a very rare and effective flint sculpture technique used by people of the paleolithic. The basic outlying shape of this artifact is repeated in many of my #paleoart finds. I will demonstrate this as the blog progress's, effectively proving a completely new flint tool topology and type, that visually communicates iconographic 'words' used as a #prehistoric communication tool.
