Two sites with cultural treasures separated by more than 40,000 years – caves with art dating to the ice age and buildings designed by a Bauhaus master less than 100 years ago – highlight Germany's submissions for the prestigious World Heritage Site designation by the U.N.'s cultural agency, UNESCO.The Bauhaus buildings in northeastern Germany were designed by the school's second director, Hannes Meyer.This year's nominations for World Heritage sites include seven natural sites, one both natural and cultural and 27 cultural sites.Other finds in the caves include a 20-centimeter phallus carved from siltstone, believed to be 32,000 years old, a water bird figure, unique in early ice age art, that is about 40,000 years old and a broken figure of a half man-half lion carved from mammoth ivory.Some Bauhaus buildings were already inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1996 .
