★ Cave painting
Petroglyphs are a type of parietal art found on the wall or ceiling of the cave. The term usually implies a prehistoric origin, but the petroglyphs can also be recent production: in the cave Gabarnmung Northern Australia, old picture, of course, precede 28.000 years ago and the most recent one was made less than a century ago.
The oldest known cave paintings are more than 44.000 years of the upper Paleolithic art found in the Franco-Cantabrian region of Western Europe, and in caves in the Maros district, Sulawesi, Indonesia. The oldest type of rock paintings of hand stencils and simple geometric shapes, the oldest undisputed examples of figurative cave paintings are somewhat younger, close to 35.000 years. The study 2018 expect century 64.000 years for the oldest examples of non-figurative cave art in Iberia, which involves the production of Neanderthals, not modern humans. In November 2018, scientists reported the discovery of the oldest known fine art landscape, 40.000, perhaps, as old as 52.000 years, an unknown animal in the cave Lubang Saleh Jeriji on the Indonesian island of Borneo. In December 2019, scientists reported the discovery of cave paintings in caves in Maros-Pangkep karst in Sulawesi, which is at least 43.900 years, and noted that the discovery was" the oldest pictorial record of early narrative and visual arts in the world.”
1. Dating. (Знакомства)
About 350 caves have been discovered in France and Spain that contain art from prehistoric times. Initially, the age of the paintings had been a contentious issue, since methods like radiocarbon Dating can produce misleading results if contaminated by samples of older or newer material, and caves and rocky ledges where parietal art is found, typically littered with debris from many time periods. But subsequent technology has made possible to date the paintings with the fence the pigment of Torch marks on the walls, or the formation of carbonate deposits on the upper part of the picture. The subject matter can also indicate chronology: for example, the reindeer depicted in the Spanish cave of Cueva de Las following locations: drawings in the last ice age.
The oldest known cave painting is a red hand stencil in the cave of the Maltravieso, cáceres, Spain. It was dated using the uranium-thorium method for over 64.000 years and made the Neanderthal. The oldest date given to an animal cave painting is now the bull is dated more than 40 000 years in the cave Lubang Saleh Jeriji, East Kalimantan, Borneo, Indonesia. Before this discovery, the oldest known cave painting was a picture of a pig aged 35.400 years, in Timpuseng cave in Sulawesi, Indonesia.
The earliest known European figurative painting these caves the Chauvet cave in France. These paintings date to earlier than 30.000 BC Upper Palaeolithic according to radiocarbon Dating. Some researchers believe the drawings are too advanced for this era and question this age. However, more than 80 radiocarbon dates, obtained in 2011, on samples taken from torch marks and from the paintings themselves, as well as from animal bones and charcoal found on the cave floor. In radiocarbon dates from these samples show that there were two periods of creation in Chauvet: 35.000 years ago and 30.000 years ago. One of the surprises was that many of the paintings were modified repeatedly over thousands of years, perhaps explains the confusion delicate paintings that seemed to date earlier than cruder ones.
In 2009, cavers discovered drawings in Coliboaia cave in Romania, stylistically comparable to those at Chauvet. Initial Dating puts the age of the image in the same range as Chauvet: about 32.000 years old.
In Australia, cave paintings have been found on the plateau of Arnhem land showing megafauna which are thought to have been extinct for over 40.000 years, making this site another candidate for oldest known painting; however, the proposed age is dependent on the extinction of the species seemingly depicted. Another Australian site, Nawarla Gabarnmang, and charcoal drawings that have been radiocarbon-dated to 28.000 years, making it the oldest site in Australia and among the oldest in the world for which reliable date of the certificate.
Other examples may become obsolete as late as the early bronze age, but well-known Magdalenian style seen at Lascaux in France V. 15.000 BC and Altamira in Spain died out about 10.000 years BC, coincides with the advent of the Neolithic. Some caves probably continued to be painted for several thousand years.
The next phase of surviving European prehistoric painting, rock art of the Iberian Mediterranean basin was very different, concentrating on large assemblies of smaller and much less detailed data, at least, many people like animals. This was created roughly between 10.000 and 5.500 years ago, and painted in rock shelters under cliffs or shallow caves, in contrast to the recesses of deep caves used in the earlier and much colder period. Although separate figures are less naturalistic, they are grouped into an integral grouped compositions to a much greater extent.
2. Subjects, themes, and templates. (Сюжеты, темы и шаблоны)
The most common subjects in cave paintings are large wild animals such as bison, horses, aurochs, and deer, and tracings of human hands as well as abstract patterns, called finger flutings. The species found most often were suitable for hunting people, but not necessarily the actual typical predators found in associated deposits of bones, for example, the artists of Lascaux is mainly left reindeer bones, but this species does not appear at all in the cave paintings, where equine species are the most common. Drawings of humans were rare and are usually schematic as opposed to the more detailed and naturalistic images of animals. Kieran D. ohara, a geologist, offers in his book, cave art and climate change, what climate control depicted themes. The pigments used are: red and yellow ochre, hematite, manganese oxide and charcoal. Sometimes the silhouette of the animal was incised in the rock first, and in some caves all or many of the images are only engraved this way, they are rather strict definition of "cave painting".
Similarly, larger animals are one of the most common subjects in the many small carved and engraved bone or ivory, rarely boulders, Dating from the same period. But they include groups of Paleolithic Venus, which have no real equivalent in cave paintings.
Hand stencils, made by placing the hand on the wall and blowing pigment at it, probably through the channel of some sort, form a characteristic image of a roughly round area of solid pigment with the colorless forms of force in the center, which can then be decorated with lines or dashes. They are often in the same caves as other paintings, or it may be the only form of painting in the room. Some walls contain many hand stencils. Similar hands are also painted in the usual manner. A number of hands show a finger wholly or partly missing several explanations have been given. The power of images in similar forms in Europe, East Asia and South America.
2.1. Subjects, themes, and templates. Theories and interpretations. (Теорий и интерпретаций)
Henri Breil to interpret the paintings as hunting magic to increase the abundance of prey.
Another theory, developed by David Lewis-Williams and, in General, on the basis of ethnographic studies of modern hunter-gatherer societies, is that the paintings were made by Paleolithic Shamans. The shaman would retreat into the darkness of the caves, enter into a trance state and then paint images of their visions, perhaps with some notion of drawing power out of the cave walls themselves.
R. Dale Guthrie, who has studied both highly artistic and low-quality art and figurines, detects a wide range of skill and ages among the artists. He hypothesizes that the main themes in the paintings and other artifacts powerful beasts, risky hunting scenes and the representation of women in the Paleolithic Venus presents the works of teenage boys who make up a large part of the population at the time. However, in analysing hand prints and stencils in French and Spanish caves, Dean snow of Pennsylvania state University suggested that some of them, including those around the spotted horses in Pech Merle, were of female hands.

Painted with red ochre, discovered in the centre of the plateau of Arnhem land, depicts two EMU-like birds with their necks outstretched.
