Popular images on our Instagram feed and our blog are our inspiration for our Shapeways designs. This keychain or pedant jewelry was generated in part by an 11,000-year old caveman illustration of a woolly-mammoth in France. (You can read our original blog article with illustration here.)
So we can say that this keychain/pedant was truly co-designed by a French Cro-magnon caveman living 11,000 years ago. (We're tempted to say that 3D design on Shapeways is now so easy even an 11,000-year-old caveperson can do it. But we can't say that because our spellchecker thinks that "caveperson" or "cavewoman" aren't words in the English language. Guess gender-neutral terminology will have to wait another 11,000 years.)
This keychain shows the caveperson's depiction of a woolly mammoth. That was part of the caveman diet back then. (Unfortunately, our ancestors liked the woolly mammoth diet a little bit too much. They're now extinct, and it's thought we played a big role in that. Since no one has seen a woolly mammoth recently, this 11,000-year old drawing is how we know what they looked like.)
The actual cave painting makes clear this elephant-looking creature had an awful lot of hair (see our blog post link above.) For 3D printing, some of that detail got lost. Even so, it still looks really cool, and it really was designed by a caveperson.
Think how cool it will be to own a prehistoric keychain or pedant co-designed by a caveman!.
Note: only includes the woolly mammoth item shown here. To use as a keychain or neck pedant, you must separately supply and attach a chain or necklace string.
