The Moment by Evgenia Arbugaeva
Tusk and Sunset: A mammoth’s tusk spikes the Siberian sky on Bolshoy Lyakhovskiy Island. Tusks that are discovered with the mammoth’s skull still attached, like this one, are not considered more valuable, notes photographer Evgenia Arbugaeva. She spent two months on the island to document the hunt for ancient ivory. “They can’t sell the skull,” she says of the tusk hunters. There is no need to saw off the tusk from the skull. They just pull it out, like pulling out a tooth.

My entry for this month’s LetsDrawSherlock video games challenge: Sherlock as Kate Walker from Syberia.

I don’t know how many people here are familiar with Syberia but in short it’s a point-and-click adventure game with a great story, nice puzzles, steam punk robots and mammoths :)
