Re: America's earliest paleoartist authenticated

Since paleoart is a frequent topic on the DML, this story might fit. In
this case, it's a paleoartist who worked from a live specimen. Of course,
Europeans can top this any day in terms of paleolithic paintings and
artifacts, but it's neat to learn that this all-American item is real.
(Unlike the "dinosaur" rock art recently debunked as a mud streak....)
Wait a minute. Hate to break this bubble, but Charles R Knight did a much
better job on this image when he originally created it 1909. He was
All-American, though. From Brooklyn, even. See upper painting (note leg
positions). Sorry for the huge url.
