Pixar of the Ice Age: Arrival of the Modern Mind
Invoking Pixar was part of Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry's deep appreciation for a 5.5-inch long, 14,000-year-old piece of bone upon which an Ice Age artist carved two deer [above].
He told Richard Holledge in a Wall Street Journal story,
"To be in the presence of this art is profoundly moving. Something as precise as this, made all those thousands of years ago, is brilliant."
"This is the beginning of art — it's like the Pixar studios of the day."
Perry spoke on the eve of a new exhibition at London's British Museum titled "Ice Age Art: Arrival of the Modern Mind."
Above and below, exemplars from the show, which will remain up through May 26.
