It is weird how old it is. It does not have a lot of detail

This is carving is very crude, but I can see how this is a female. It is amazing how long this has survived.

This art almost looks like it wasn't finished, as I only see parts of the body. The lines are very rough, as that makes sense because this is so old, they didnt have the best tools. I am surprised this art lasted this long.
