Am Anfang der Kunst – Art at the Start
40,000 years ago, hunters of the Ice Age travelled upstream along the river Danube to the Swabian Jura. They found shelter in the caves in the prehistoric Danube Valley, where, for the first time, they created small artworks, figures made from mammoth ivory as well as musical instruments – an important step in human development, the so-called ‘world origin of culture’.
The exhibition presented replicas of the unique finds. One original, however, is on permanent display: the largest and most mysterious sculpture, the ‘Löwenmensch’ (lion man).
