La lampe de La Faurélie II.

Abstract : The discovery of a new Magdalenian " lamp " by J. Tixier in the rock-shelter of La Faurélie II (Dordogne) increases the inventory of carved lamps with handles - of which only thirty are known. The La Faurélie lamp is the only example of such a type of lamps to be entirely pecked and not smoothed by abrasion; in addition, its triangular handle is not free and its general shape is oval, which makes it an original document. However, only its shape allows it, for the moment, to be considered as a lamp, since no sign of use is perceptible into or around the bowl.
