Bird (or genyornis) is the word
Friend of yours?
This is a pretty exciting find. Genyornis has been extinct for quite some time, for one thing. For another, an intact work of art from the middle or upper Paleolithic is a rare occasion. Finally, it's good. The nameless artist who did this painting knew the animal well, as they say. And knew some perspective as well. All told, pretty cool.
