Week 3

Rock art is often discovered with a sense of mystery. The work was not signed or framed, but rather left hiding in a dark isolated cave. This makes it difficult to explain the rock art, but that has not stopped…

Week 3 blog – Cave Art

         The first thing that came to mind when I took the virtual tour at Lascaux was it was like walking into a hall of records.  It seemed like permanent recordings of observations and events that had actually taken place were…
