Bone engraving of a horse, drawn on a fragment of rib, one end of which has been neatly cut. The other end has an ancient break. The horse faces right and is carefully drawn. The line of its mane is shown along the top edge of the rib as a series of diagonal hatched lines. The head and neck are clearly outlined. Single vertical lines have been drawn over the horse.
