(Reuters) – French archaeologists have discovered an 11,000-year-old wall painting underground in northern Syria which they believe is the oldest in the world. The 2 square-meter painting, in red, black and white, was found at the Neolithic settlement of Djade al-Mughara on the Euphrates, northeast of the city of Aleppo, team leader Eric Coqueugniot told Reuters. “It looks like a modernist painting. Some of those who saw it have likened  [ Read More ]

WASHINGTON (AP) — New tests show that crude Spanish cavepaintings of a red sphere and handprints are the oldest in the world, so ancient they may not have been by modern man. Some scientists say they might have even been made by the much-maligned Neanderthals, but others disagree. Testing the coating of paintings in 11 Spanish caves, researchers found that one is at least 40,800 years old, which is at least 15,000  [ Read More ]

Prehistoric dots and crimson hand stencils on Spanish cave walls are now the world’s oldest known cave art, according to new dating results—perhaps the best evidence yet that Neanderthals were Earth’s first cave painters.   If that’s the case, the discovery narrows the cultural distance between us and Neanderthals—and fuels the argument, at least for one scientist, that the heavy–browed humans were not a separate species but only another race. Of the  [ Read More ]

Paleolithic Cave Art

Around 40,000 years ago, modern humans (homo sapiens sapiens) migrated from Africa to Europe. Biologically identical with contemporary humans, the migrants had the same physical and mental capacities that we possess, though they lacked the thousands of years of cultural development that are now behind us. They arrived in Europe around the height of the last glacial advance, and learned to survive in the extreme cold by sewing animal skins  [ Read More ]

Cave Paintings

consists of engraved or painted works on open air rocks or on the floors, walls and ceilings of caves, some of them in deep and almost inaccessible crannies. They were created during the Upper Palaeolithic period (40,000 to 10,000 BC), and the best were done by what we call the Magdalenians (from the name of a site), peoples who flourished in Europe from 18,000 to 10,000 BC. Such works have  [ Read More ]

Moche and Nazca Art

Andean pottery culminated with the splendid vessels of the Moche and Nazca peoples. A sharp stylistic contrast may be observed between these two cultures. While Moche pottery is typically realistically modelled and painted with a single colour, the Nazca preferred stylized modelling decorated in multiple colours (see Realism vs. Stylization). The other most notable artworks of this period are the Nazca Lines (created by the Nazca culture). These enormous line  [ Read More ]
