Cave paintings at Niaux in the Languedoc

I watched an artistically and historically interesting documentary created by British artist Anthony Gormley about how art began, looking at cave paintings.

He visited some in France, Spain and Indonesia. Created not just centuries apart but also continents apart yet the techniques and the subjects were amazingly similar.

Take a look at the progamme and if it whets your appetite you can visit some here in the region at Niaux.
