Chauvet Caves - Art is Long

When I say "art is long," I mean even some prehistoric art survives till now and blows us away.  The caves of Chauvet, France as a for instance.

Surprisingly, I enjoy these drawings more than some of the other cave drawings.  Prehistoric Avant-Garde, maybe.

Oh, this was just wonderful! I had never heard of the Chauvet Caves before. The artwork was astounding, and I loved the virtual tour of the cave art and archaeology on the website.

The movie is now on our Netflix queue now :) - thanks so much for sharing these links!

Wonderful! Thank you Casey. When ever I hear the old 'painting is dead' statement, I think of the caves in France and Spain and smile that Mona Lisa smile, knowing that until all of mankind is dead, painting will not die.

Sharon: very well said. Keep smiling.
Celeste: It is heart stopping to encounter something really old that speaks to us.
Sonya: Netflix. Got it!
Sam: Now to find the glasses.
