Barlangi oroszln - Panthera leo spelaea v3

[HUN] Sziasztok! Technikai okok miatt csak sokkal később tudtuk megosztani ezt a bejegyzést Veletek, mint ahogy szerettük volna (ezért utólag is elnézést kérünk a kevésbé kedves internetszolgáltató nevében). Akik folyamatosan nyomon követik tevékenységünket, azok számára aktuális alanyunk bizonyára már nem lesz ismeretlen. A barlangi oroszlán (Panthera leo spelaea) egykor széles körben elterjedt volt az eurázsiai földrészen, de emellett Alaszkában is találkoztak kövületeivel. Jelen tudásunk szerint első képviselőik hozzávetőlegesen 400 ezer évvel ezelőtt bukkantak fel, a középső pleisztocén idején.

Az észak-spanyolországi Kantábria területén elhelyezkedő La Garma-barlangban Dr. Marian Cueto (Universidad de Cantabria) csapatával kilenc ujjperccsontot (phalanx) fedeztek fel, amik egy példányhoz tartozhattak, és melyeket a későbbiekben tüzetesebb tanulmányozás alá vetettek. Vizsgálatuk végén megdöbbentő következtetésre jutottak: a környéket valaha benépesítő késő kőkorszaki emberek alkalomadtán vadásztak a barlangi oroszlánra. A maradványokon a szakértők számára kivehetőek voltak a nyúzás nyomai, amit ráadásul nagy szakértelemmel végeztek – a bőrt lefejtő gondosan ügyelt arra, hogy a bunda eltávolításakor a karmok ne váljanak le. Ennek következtében szinte teljesen biztosra vehető, hogy egyáltalán nem egyszeri esetről volt szó. A fosszíliák elhelyezkedése alapján valószínűnek tartják, hogy a prém a barlang aljzatán volt kiterítve, de rendeltetésének pontos céljáról egyelőre csak találgathatunk. Az eredmények tükrében azt a lehetőséget sem zárták ki teljesen, hogy eleinknek köze lehetett a barlangi oroszlán mintegy 14 ezer évvel ezelőtt bekövetkezett kihalásához.

A dologhoz azonban érdemes hozzáfűzni, hogy ezek a ragadozók nagy hatást gyakoroltak őseink kulturális életére. Számos európai lelőhelyről kerültek elő például az úgynevezett löwenmensch-szobrocskák: amint azt a nevük is sugallhatja, ezek a figurák félig ember, félig oroszlán alakokat ábrázolnak (talán a mamutagyarból faragott hohlenstein-stadeli darab számít a legismertebbnek mind közül). A barlangok falain megörökített festmények ugyancsak sokat árultak el a rég letűnt macskafélékről – segítségükkel derült ki többek között, hogy a barlangi oroszlánok falkákban élhettek, hímjeiknek pedig nem volt sörénye.

Ezek a korai műalkotások adtak ihletet Péter cimboránknak, aki az alább látható illusztrációt készítette. Reméljük, hogy ez a munkája is elnyeri a tetszéseteket!

[ENG] Hi there! Due to technical issues we could only share this post now, much later than we initially planned (although lately, we apologise for this inconvenience in the name of our „dear” internet provider). For those who are following our activities on this page, this feline won’t be unknown. Cave lions (Panthera leo spelaea) were quite widespread in the Eurasian landmass, but its fossils have been found in Alaska as well. Based on our current knowledge they’ve first shown up 400 thousand years ago, in Middle Pleistocene.

In La Garma Cave – situated in Cantabria, Northern Spain – Dr. Marian Cueto (Universidad de Cantabria) and her team had discovered nine toe bones (scientifically known as phalanges), which all belonged to one specimen. Later they had been put to various tests and observations. At the end of their research they came to some stunning conclusions: humans living in this area occassionally hunted down cave lions. For the researchers the signs of skinning were obvious – whoever did it, did so with surprising precision. The skinner made the extra effort to keep the claws on during the removal of the pelt. Based on this evidence we can safely assume that the procedure was not a single case. The place where the fossils were found make it likely that the pelt was laid down on the cave floor, however its exact purpose remains to be unknown. Reflecting on the studies, it is not impossible that our ancestors could have played some part in the extinction of the cave lion, which happened approximately 14 thousand years ago.

It is worth noting that these predators had a great impact on the cultural lives of our precursors. As an example, lesser statues have been uncovered from several dig sites: so-called löwenmensch figures, which depict half-man and half-lion creatures (as their names give it away). Probably the most known of them is the one found in Hohlenstein-Stadel, made from mammoth ivory. The paintings on the cavern walls tell some tales of the cats of a bygone era, as well. They made it possible for us to find out that cave lions lived and hunted in packs, or that males were maneless.

These early works of art sparked inspiration in our friend Péter, who made the illustration below. We hope that you’ll find his work awesome!

Maofelis cantonensis

[HUN] Sziasztok! Aktuális posztunkban ismét egy friss bejelentés hírét osztjuk meg Veletek. Sokan nem tudják, hogy a Smilodon-hoz hasonló macskafélék úgymond védjegyévé vált kardfogak számos alkalommal fejlődtek ki az ősidő folyamán, még az emlősök között is. A Nimravidae család jónéhány tagja ugyan nagyon hasonlított külsőre a kardfogú macskákra, mégsem közeli rokonai azoknak. Ezen csoport egyik talán legősibb képviselőjének fosszíliájára bukkantak rá a kínai Kuangtung provincia területén. A Maofelis cantonensis mintegy 35–40 millió évvel ezelőtt élt teknősök, krokodilfélék és páratlanujjú patások („kavicsszörnyek” és szarv nélküli orrszarvú-rokonok) társaságában. Koponyáját csaknem teljesen ép állapotában találták meg – korábban csak töredékes maradványok kerültek elő a kontinensről, így a kövület felfedezése kisebb szenzációnak számít a paleontológusok körében. A lelet alapján feltételezik, hogy a Nimravidae családba tartozó ál-kardfogúak Ázsiában fejlődtek ki, majd onnan kiindulva hódították meg először az észak-amerikai (a késő eocén alatt), majd az európai földrészeket (a kora oligocén idején). Ezek a húsevők az északi félteke csúcsragadozóinak számítottak, ám az oligocén végén teljesen eltűntek: kihalásukban nagy szerepet játszhatott az erdőségek ritkulása, melyek helyét a nyílt, füves térségek vették át.

[ENG] Hi there! In this post we’d like to share some news with You! A lot of people don’t know that the „trademark” sabertooth of felines like Smilodon developed often in the prehistoric era – even in the various orders of mammals. The members of family Nimravidae resembled sabertooth cats, however they were not in close relation with them. One of the group’s oldest member’s remains have been found in Guangdong Province, China. Maofelis cantonensis lived approximately 35–40 million years ago along with crocodiles, tortoises and perissodactyls („gravel beasts”, also known as chalicotherioids and amynodontids or hornless rhino-relatives). Its skull was found almost intact – earlier only partial remains were found, so this was a lesser sensation among paleontologists. Based on the fossil, it is assumed that false-sabertooths of the Nimravidae family originated in Asia, then they went on to North America (during Late Eocene) and Europe (during Early Oligocene). These animals were hypercarnivores of the Northern Hemisphere, but at the end of Oligocene they completely disappeared. A major change in their habitat could have played a great part in their extinction: forests were replaced by open, grassy areas.

Talking about the cats of bygone, peace of mind, values…

Virtual interview with Peter Hutzler


The first „specimen” of our topic is a talented paleo-illustrator… on contrary the prefix (thank God), this is not related to the nowadays famous „paleo-diet”. The so-called paleoartists’ main goal is to reconstruct, more accurately „resurrect” animals and their habits from a long-past era. Similar to a sculptor or an architect, a good paleoartist has dexterity, precision, last and not least professional knowledge. Hungary hasn’t got many of this kind of talents (or is it me, who is not informed?), so I happily introduce you Peter Hutzler, who is a member of this small group.

 

- My friend, please introduce yourself in a few sentences!

- First of all I would like to greet you and your colleagues, and of course the readers! I am Peter Hutzler and I spend my everydays in Hungary, a small city called Martonvásár in Fejér county with my wife and our daughter. I direct the work of my five workmates at a security-technology company, and I also train and look after our three dog-colleagues. I would like to add that this virtual interview surprised me, but you made me very happy! Thank you!

- You’re welcome! Your works look amazing, and that’s not even the correct word to describe it! When did you start seriously drawing? How did the paleo-art get into the picture?

- :-D Thanks! You could say I started when I was a child. I barely remember that my father taught me the basics: how to draw a horse, a dog, etc. The urge of my primary school teachers and my parents was the reason I choose an „artistic” secondary school, where I unfortuately didn’t get in… so I continued my life in another direction, but drawing remained my hobby. After I graduated, I got to know the virtual drawing programs in a multimedia-training. I found myself again, and the hobby became a profession. I worked as a graphic several times, just the „right time in the right place” not succeeded until this time! I got interested in paelo-art early, again, by my father. We had, have a book – Zdenek V. Spinar: Life before man – filled with the artworks of Zdenek Burian. The style of the artist got me as a child. This was how it all started…

 - One of your first works I’ve met, illustrates a saber-tooth. As far as I know, you love „ancient” cats. Why are they your favourite?

- My love for the animals came from my father as well, who worked in animal care. We often watched and watch nature films. The first documentary I saw was about big cats, on channel National Geographic.  This was love at first sight, as they say… and then I saw in the mentioned book how their ancestors could look like. So the topic just got me…

- Feline carnivores from the past have lots of genuses… Have you got a favourite? My guess is the genus of Smilodons, but please correct me if I am wrong!

- You got it right! Most of my pictures represent Smilodons. They were the biggest saber-tooth felines.

 - And what about the Miacidae? Before the nowadays known felines could have become „top predators”, they must have lived in the shadow of Miacidae… What do you think about them?

- I don’t know much about them… I focus on saber-tooth felines right now. Sooner or later I’m sure I will be interested in other species, too. What you said is interesting, I mean that felines were just „second fiddles”… We can notice this in our lives too, for example african lions and the other predators in their shadow…  Because of the impact of the human race, lions will go extinct, and other predators will take their role… Well, this is what we call evolution! Smaller and lighter carnivores will take their place. Bigger herbivores are getting more rare too, but that’s just my theory… But please correct me if I’m wrong.

 - The truth is, upstarts like reducing the number of the herbivore population, too. For example there are cape buffaloes, rhinos, and of course elephants. Have you got a favourite animal? Regardless if it is extinct, or alive…

- Dogs.

 - You made a lot of drawings in the past years… Have you got a favourite? Or one that you aren’t really proud of? The latest question seems stupid… or isn’t it?

- There was a period in my life, when I didn’t draw anything, but I missed the feeling… The feeling that I could create something, something that is my own, made by my own hands… so approximately a year ago I started making paleo-illustrations. Browsing on the internet I found the pictures of Mauricio Anton and Roman Uchytel; and I felt the tingling feeling again, the inspiration. I suddenly realized that this was what I was missing from my life! I came to the conclusion that I wouldn’t like to collect and look at others’ pictures, I want to make my own. I have a favourite, but I’m not fully satisfied with any of them. Old warrior shows a weathered, experienced Smilodon populator, an alpha male. I would like to mention a false saber-tooth feline, which is called „the Balkans’ saber-tooth” , the Metailurus major zdansky. I think that a lot of people find interesting the fact that these predators lived even in our country’s area. These days the most dangerous animals encountered on trips are ticks…

- If it is not a secret, can you tell us, how do you make your drawings?

- Of course, there is no need to be secretive! I simply make photomanipulations, based on my drawings made by hand… of course reality is a bit more complicated. As I said I watch lots of nature films. The week of big cats on National Geographic Wild is like a holiday for me. Watching these lets my imagination loose and the conceptions come…

 -A question raised in my head… have you ever been asked to make a special or official work? I mean, have you ever made something for a book or a website?

-Truth is, I probably started making paleo-illustrations a year ago, for my own joy. I wanted to have my own, self-made pictures of my favourite animals. I wouldn’t dare to dream about that it could catch many people’s attention, including official artists’. I haven’t received such a thing yet, but I think it is too soon now. Day after day, I learn and study more and more, and I’m sure it’ll yield fruit.

-Have you got plans for the far or near future, which you are willing to share with us?

-I have lots of plans, but they are at an early state. Unfortunately, the lack of technology and funds are making progress hard. I would like to make sculptures, in fact, I already started it. I mean, I tried out a few 3D imaging programs. Right now I would like to use my experiences in this area.

 -Our website, The Deimos Peninsula is trying to broadcast values to the readers. What are the most important values in your everyday life? Which ones are the most important?

-The most important is my family… I mean both my nuclear and „bigger” family. I have to thank them for the loving, peaceful environment and for the harmony around every walk of my life!

 -Have you got an exemplar? A person you look up to? I’m sure there are at least one person in your profession, who gives you inspiration…

-I got help and encouragement from my parents, and I still get every day, for which I can’t thank them enough. My exemplar is my father. And from the profession, Mauricio Anton is the artist, who is the mostly inspiring for me. I never thought I could get to know him in real life; it was a pleasant surprise that I got an invitation from him to the Okavango Delta, to draw big cats, and take photos of them. I’d like to mention Roman Uchytel, who is working with similar methods. Thinking further, seeing his pictures made me think that I could create something like that.

 -My last question: have you got a motto for life? Or a certain message to the readers?

-I think many don’t know what is meditation, what is the point of it. When meditating, brain only focuses on one thing; one thing, that makes the outer world „disappear”. Therefore soul can find peace. I feel it when I make my pictures. Completely turns me off! Similar feeling to this when you get up from a long sleep, world seems so close yet so far away. Dear reader! I wish you find a thing, an activity in your life, which can divert your attention from the problems of everydays! I wish you find your inner peace!

Thank you for your time and for honoring us with your presence, my friend! I wish you luck both in your life and in your profession!
