Approximatively 17000 years ago, artists took possession of Lascaux cave, letting their creativity go wild.


On this cave’s walls an incredible number of animals and signs were found.
17000 years later, a lot of mystery still surrounds this place for researchers… and for visitors as well !


During your tour of Lascaux, you certainly won’t miss the multitude of signs on #Lascaux walls: dots, circles, geometrical forms, stripes or rectangular symbols…


Those registered signs constitute and important whole work. Some of them are developed in ribbon on several meters, others are made of large converging and engraved bands called “hut” or “great wizard”.


The proportion of those figures grows from the entry to the far end of the cave…


In total, 500 signs are still unexplained.


Signatures? Invocations? Messages for future generations…?


And you, what do you think about it ?
