The '''Swimming Reindeer''' is the name given to a 13,000-year-old [[Magdalenian]] sculpture of two swimming [[reindeer]] conserved in the [[British Museum]]. The sculpture was made in France by an unknown artist who carved the artwork from the tip of a [[mammoth]] tusk. The sculpture was found in two pieces in 1866, but it was not until the early 20th century that [[Henri Breuil|Abbé Henri Breuil]] realised that the two pieces fit together to form a single sculpture of two reindeer swimming nose-to-tail.<ref name="brad"/>
