The carving , less than 2cm in length, has been dated to the palaeolithic period, between 13, and 13, years ago, which pushes back the earliest known date of east Asian animal sculpture by more than eight millennia. It was found at Lingjing in the Henan province of China , and takes the form of a bird standing on a pedestal, which researchers say indicates it may belong to an entirely original artistic tradition, unconnected to other ancient styles found in Europe or Siberia. That is clear not only from the minute detail of the carving, he says, but the form chosen by its creator. Instead, the figurine is beautifully balanced and stands upright if set on a flat surface. The earliest known carved figures date from a much earlier period, up to 40, years ago, and consist of animal and human figures sculpted from mammoth ivory, which were discovered in the Swabian Jura mountain range in what is now Germany. Until now, however, the earliest animal sculpture found in east Asia dated from around 3, BC.

When she was nude, she stretched out on the bed and offered her pussy to me. I knew what to do immediately. Listening to her moan and whimper in response to my tongue licking the swollen pink folds of her pussy was a real turn-on. I especially enjoyed when she experienced an orgasm a couple of minutes later. Unlike some of the girls in school, you can really tell that she had an orgasm, as she gushed out a jet of love honey.
