Grotte de Pech Merle by CyclicalCore Grotte de Pech Merle by CyclicalCore
The horses were painted ~25,000 BC.  You can see where the artist used the shape of the rock to define the horse's head on the right.

The spots and the inverse hand prints were made by a method of spitting the ink from the mouth (through the hand for the spots, on the hand for the hand prints).

This picture is a photo of a postcard (look at the printing artifacts if you zoom in) because they had some stupid rule about how taking pictures would ruin the science or something silly like that, but was likely implemented to keep people from accidentally using flashes. 

Still a VERY cool experience to see things so old, even with the no-pictures rule. 

Grotte de Pech Merle, Cabrerets, France.
