50 000 Years Ago

AUSTRALIAN CAVE ART

The Indigenous Australians believe the mural came from a period in which all things were created. This “Creation Period” is believed to be a time when the Ancestral Beings created the land and sea, the animals and plant life.

The park holds one of the highest concentrated areas of rock art in the world. As many as 5,000 Aboriginal sites have been found here, including rock art, shelters, stone tools, grindstones and ceremonial ochre. This detailed, dramatic record of life in Kakadu stretches back more than 50,000 years – from the first evidence of human occupation to the arrival of Europeans.

40 000 - 20 000 Years Ago

EUROPEAN CAVE ART

Various images created on rocks, are dating back to the period of 150 000 years ago. But in the full sense of the term murals emerged in the late Paleolithic period, ie 40 - 20 thousand years ago. The discovery of Paleolithic art: petroglyphs, reliefs, drawings, paintings, etc., revealed artistic level of previous generations, which remained inaccessible for thousands of years.

To date, only in France discovered about 100 caves with the images, which at one time was a sensation. Then in the middle of the XIX century, people did not know the art older than the ancient Egyptian or Celtic, so it was assumed that any earlier forms, which may yet be discovered to be more primitive. There was a controversy about that, because many people did not believe prehistoric man had the intellectual capacity to produce any kind of artistic expression. It was hard to believe that in the mists of time - from ten to thirty thousand years ago - in Europe there was an art worth admiration.

they were presented earlier in the paintings dominated by "portraits" of animals and hunting scenes, the images are so realistic that one of the caves was apt name of "the prehistoric Sistine Chapel" (the cave of Lascaux, 17 millennium BC). "Realistic mastery" of the ancient paintings might have many envied modern animal artists.
