The Lascaux cave complex, one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, is home to the best-known Palaeolithic paintings, dating from a mere 18,000 years ago. Made by prehistoric man, these paintings represent the first ever know art form. Magical.
Even though they are very old, these paintings show an advanced perception of the real world, with the rendering of a bull, horses and a human, reduced so elementally to their simplest form.
