i have been facinated by early man for many years. one of my first awards was for a painting titled "the cave" 1967
why did early man place importance on the graven image? some scholars have speculated that these images possibly made by paleolithic shamans served as a form of magic which insured a successful hunt. pigments used were ochre, hematite, manganese oxide and charcoal. quiet remarkable for beings that existed 32000 years ago.
