Lascaux Hall Of The Bulls, Aurochs. Digital oil painting.
The second auroch on the left panel of the Hall of the bulls looks left, together with the wonderful tiny deer, and faces the rest of the animals coming from that side.
It is hard to find another panel of such beauty, both in color and in variety amongst the most fine and exquisite paintings of the paleolithic.
Aurochs or bulls, deer, horses, and the uncanny figure called the unicorn, in which many recognize two hunters with spears under a piece of fur, this panel is full of energy and life. The peculiar style and variety of figures together in a continuous composition set Lascaux as one of the big caves, along with Altamira, Chauvet or Niaux, to mention some of the most amazing caves so far discovered.
The paintings in Lascaux date from the Magdalenian age, about 15-17,000 ybp.
