DESCRIPTION

Dating to the pleistocene era (between 12,000 and 2.5 million years ago), this top quality Siberian woolly mammoth femur and tibia bones (Mammuthus primigenius) is in great condition. Partially fossilised in was unearthed in Yakutia (Siberia). This item originally formed the core of a collection of Pleistocene (2.6million-12,000 years ago) Ice Age material in the Mammoth Museum (Museu del Mamut) in Barcelona, which closed in 2016. It was located on the Carrer de Montcada in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, in a 12th century Gothic building close to major museums such as the Museu Picasso and the Museu Europeu d'Art Modern.

This demonstrates that, like the rest of Europe, modern Spain was once a snow and ice-covered wilderness, a climate in which the Mammoth, and other Ice-Age fauna such as sabre-tooth tigers and bison, flourished, inhabiting the region until the end of the last Ice Age (around 10,000 BC). Included in this sale from the museum, but originating from the Yakutia Province of Siberia are all of the iconic large herbivore mammals from the Ice age, including an extremely rare example of a woolly rhinoceros.
