Interesting Fact # 943 - Art

Archeologists working on a dig in the southern German province of Swabia have unearthed what they claim to be the oldest statue in the history of art.

(The artifacts, found in a cave, date back between 30,000 and 33,000 years, to a time when some of modern humans' earliest relatives populated the European continent. They depict a lion-man, a water bird and a horse.)
