Animated Ibex

Jim Darlack alerted me to the world's oldest animation.

Of course, it is an ibex! For those of you who don't know, the Ibex is the mascot/logo/trademark of Eisenbrauns. Ours is an adaptation of an early dynastic cylinder seal, so it only dates to about 2,000 BCE; the animated one is about 1000 years or so older. I guess ours must feel like a teenager compared to that one :)
