In a time far far away: Cave Art

Before we had applications and software that now allow us to draw digitally, there was a time when our ancestors used the good old-fashioned way by drawing by hand (we know, crazy isn’t it? We mean a time when computers didn’t exist!)

Here are some lovely examples of cave art, look at the skill and eye for detail they had, considering the lack of advancement in tools, equipment and the rough surface they were produced on, no rubbers back then we can tell ya!

 

If that wasn’t enough check out the following vids!

 

 

So what is the oldest ever cave art painting? 

Well it so happens to be the Red dots, hand stencils and animal figures that represent the oldest examples yet found of cave art in Europe. The symbols on the walls at 11 Spanish locations, including the World Heritage sites of Altamira, El Castillo and Tito Bustillo have long been recognised for their antiquity… Now bet you didn’t know that this morning!
