Altamira Cave Paintings

Altamira Cave is 270 metres long and consists of a series of twisting passages and chambers. The main passage varies from two to six metres in height.

Stone-age cave paintings, Chauvet, France - Stock Image - C009/7646

Stone age cave painting of horses from Chauvet, France. The paintings there are the oldest known, carbon-dated to approximately 33,000 years ago, almost twice the age of the Lascaux cave paintings.­­­ The dates have been a matter of dispute but a study published in 2012 supports placing the art in the Aurignacian period, approximately 30,000-32,000 BP.

These cave paintings amaze me: Horse heads, Chauvet Cave. Fourteen different animal species are depicted in the Chauvet Cave. Here, three beautiful horses' heads face one another. Someday I want to see cave paintings in person. Chauvet Cave, Lascaux, Ancient History, Art History, History Museum, Paleolithic Art, Cave Drawings, Horse Drawings, Art Ancien
