After finding the larger rhino, I noticed the head of the baby and found its body stone, which was clipped by the ancient artist to accommodate the head perfectly. For both Ice Age rhinos, I took the liberty to code the foot/leg pebbles underneath with an indelible marker – each one carefully labeled RF for right front; LF for left front; RR for right rear; and LR for left rear. These marks can be removed with rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip. (I did this because it took me quite a while to find the right leg-stone placements to make each Ice Age animal figure level. The legs are pebbles found near our house and not the original parts) The white chert horn found with these stones reflected the flash from the camera washing out the minute pits which gives it an ancient ivory appearance to match the other stones. (The horn sits flush with the rhino’s face, not behind it as the photo might suggest.) Sienna jasper w white chert horn, 13 parts; horizontal and vertical orientation. Cow: 2.5″h x 7.4″L / Calf: 1.5″h x 3.6″L total weight = 890 gm.
