Kouprey (Bos sauveli)

The Kouprey is a wild cattle native to Southeast Asia, which was first discovered in 1937 by western science and was not seen since 1983. It is now thought to be probably extinct. Its large dewlap reaching nearly the ground is imposing.

Medieval mining settlement. In the foreground there is a mine shaft with bobbin. Workers stamping the ore aside. Farther behind there are a forge, an assay furnace, an ore roasting furnace, the dwellings of the miners, a charcoal pit and a Waldhufendorf. The merchants in the foreground show that these villages were provided with aliment from outside and that they had no own food production.

Mesolithic shaman with antler frontlet, lynx fur and bodypainting. Headdress like this was found in many parts of Europe. If they were used for cultic functions or drafted for going deerstalking is vague. Certainly there were similar masks by shamans in Siberia till the recent past.

Abschied von Marcus Burkhardt

Alles was schön ist, bleibt auch schön,
auch wenn es welkt.
Und unsere Liebe bleibt Liebe,
auch wenn wir sterben.
