Found in 1940 in a complex of caves in southwestern France, Lascaux is renowned for its Palaeolithic cave paintings. Speculated to be up to 20,000 years old, the paintings are mostly of large animals which are evidenced to have lived in the area at the time. These paintings are relevant to today because it shows that just as in the present time, people liked to be creative and document the things of their time, which is something that separates us from our even more ancient ancestors.

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.
