Lion-man of the Hohlenstein-Stadel is a prehistoric ivory sculpture that was discovered in the HohlensteinStadel, a German cave in 1939. The lion-headed figurine is the oldest-known animal-shaped sculpture in the world, and the oldest-known uncontested example of figurative art.

– combination of human and animal to create some sort of super natural characteristic.

Some Ancient Egyptian gods had the heads of animals and so masks or sarcophagus often had animal imagery on incorporated into them.
