Diorama at Mammoths and Mastodons Exhibit

Life-size Columbian mammoth.
Today I visited the Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. In contrast to the life-size sculptures of a mammoth, cave bear, and saber-toothed cat, there was a diorama of wee mammoth hunt. I'd say the figures are HO scale, maybe 1/76 or so.
Part 1: The hunter close-in on the mammoth.

Part 2: Carving up dinner.

Part 3: Storing the leftovers in a cool pond.
