Mammoth - Ivory - "The White Gold" ...
The mammoth is said to have died out about 8,000-10,000 years ago. Some scientists are of the opinion that in the vastness of the Siberian forests still some animals could live! Other scientists found some frozen cadavers and are now busy with the DNA of the animals. If the research continues to be very successful, these animals may one day be present again.
They live, inter alia, in Europe, and especially in Siberia, the taiga and Alaska. The mammoth was of great importance to humans. Especially the Cro-Magnon people had represented the mammoth in their cave drawings in France and Spain.
The up to 6 tons heavy animals had tusks up to 4.80 meters long. The extremely heavy living conditions brought the animals there. Especially in the cold Siberia, the ivory tusks have been well preserved. As in the ice age, the mammoth ivory is again processed into jewelry today. Ivory, which is also known as the "white gold", finds its special prehistoric significance.
The mammoth, - an animal of special power, expressiveness and size. His ivory and its importance for the Cro-Magnon man is more than a historical reminder of our ancestors.
