David Armitage, Batavia, New York
Hunting reindeer and other large mammals, fashioning tools from stones and bones, and littering the landscape with small carvings, Magdalénian hunter-gatherers roamed Western Europe from 15,000-7,000 B.C. David recalled these denizens of the Upper Paleolithic period with Nemrod’s 54mm figure (mammoth skull included). He used twine for grass, and gravel and spices for the groundwork. The background is a calendar picture.
