A gigantic Woolly Mammoth, drawn with charcoal

http://www.youtube.com/user/Terpentijn - This drawing of a Mammoth (or Mastodont) was made largely with charcoal. For the details I used pastel pencil.

The Mammoth was also drawn with charcoal by the Cro-Magnon people, some 17000 years ago.

So with this drawing I went back to the beginning of the history of art.
The animal is drawn by heart. In the beginning I made mistakes with the eye and the length of the legs. But I could still correct this in time. 

The music is 'The rite of spring', composed by Stravinsky.

This music is about the primeval times, and seemed to me right for this video.
