Jardin des Plantes woolly mammoth sculpture
Now according to a book written about mammoths, this woolly mammoth sculpture that you can see in this photo was based upon actual fossil material in order to reconstruct this statue of the extinct mammal as close as possible to what it would have been like.

Also, as you can see from these high definition photographs, this sculpture of a woolly mammoth has been produced with as much fine detail as possible, but unfortunately, we did not see a plaque or any information to state who produced this sculpture in Paris or when it was first put in place.
