35,000 years ago a magical artist rendered a mammoth

Doesn't this tiny sculpture of a mammoth remind you of the Venus of Willendorf? The woman was carved some 10,000 years later. She is much more detailed. But the sexual energy, the expression of life force, seems much the same.
Simplicity, suggestion, awareness of the primal: the maker of this talisman established in one carving the classic standards of art.
