Since paleoart is a frequent topic  on the DML, this story might fit. In

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.
