This story of a dramatic event in tribal history shows that the paleo-artist had the presence of mind to etch this attack for tribal record. This bone has been checked by paleontologists in America, as well as Europe, and was found to be at least 15,000 years old. Replicas of the Vero Mammoth Bone are now on display at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C., and an exhibit at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville (the University of Florida).
A second story bone was found at this same location. This bone also depicts artwork using a mammoth bone as its canvas. Aptly named The Fisherman Bone, the next piece shows a man holding a spear and a large fish on one end, and several chevrons or talley marks on the other end. This bone is of even greater cultural significance, as it is the first depiction of a human being by a human being to be found in the fossil records in the Western Hemisphere; a true treasure and a discovery for mankind.
