Swimming Reindeer

 
The Swimming Reindeer is the name given to a 13,000 year old (Magdalenian) sculpture of two swimming reindeer discovered in Bruniquel, France by French engineer, Peccadeau de l’Isle, in 1866.  The pattern of ten regular "ticks" on the back of the female reindeer may indicate counting, as they are only on one side of her back.  (Link)
