Superb Paleolithic art

I previously blogged about the deteriorating conditions of the famous cave paintings at Lascaux. On a more upbeat note, there is another extensive cave system - the Chauvet Cave - that also has spectacular Paleolithic art. Especially when you consider that the images embedded above were drawn 30,000 years ago - it's truly impressive artwork.

More info at THIS LINK, and at the Chauvet Cave interactive site. Credit to Scribal Terror.

  1. "This 'Art' or historic record is most essential in the determining ancient ancestral occupations. I, for one, find these ancient illustrations invaluable to ascertain Humans in a time when all of our environment was a different world. I would only insist that these stories be compiled and told to our species. What a wonderful link and forensic research potential.
