(Solved) Who Made The Chauvet Cave Paintings?

It was December 18, 1994 🤓 French cavers Jean-Marie Chauvet, Éliette Brunel Deschamps, and Christian Hillaire had spent the day exploring the Pont d’Arc caves in the Ardèche region in southern France 😁 A collection of rocks has fallen upon them and they hear a gentle sound from underneath the rock pile 🙈 After removing all the stones from their path, they have found an opening and were able to descend into a huge chamber with a high ceiling. This chamber appeared to have branches that led into more chambers. The headlamps they used illuminated many handprints as well as a red ochre. Painting of a mammoth on the wall One chamber. They are aware that they have stumbled upon a significant archaeological find.
This simulated cavern not only pays tribute to a location, but it also captures a special moment. It celebrates the cold afternoon in December 1994 when three friends and weekend cavers—Jean-Marie Chauvet, Eliette Brunel and Christian Hillaire—followed an air current into an aperture in a limestone cliff, tunneled their way through a narrow passage, using hammers and awls to chip away at the rocks and stalactites that blocked their progress, and descended into a world frozen in time—its main entrance blocked off by a massive rock slide 29,000 years ago. Brunel was first to squeeze through the passage. He had seen the surreal crystal deposits built up over many millennia. Brunel stopped just before the pair of blurry lines that were drawn on her wall. “They have been here,” she shouted to her awe-struck companions.

We’re on the island of Sulawesi, in Indonesia, an hour’s drive north of the bustling port of Makassar. A large group of men impedes us from approaching the closest karst. Black macaques that screech at us from trees high on the cliff and climb a bamboo ladder through ferns to a cave called Leang Timpuseng. Inside, the usual sounds of everyday life here—cows, roosters, passing motorbikes—are barely audible through the insistent chirping of insects and birds. You get the sense that this cave could close at any minute. The space is narrow and awkward. But its modest appearance can’t diminish my excitement: I’m knowing this place is host to something magical, something I’ve travelled nearly 8,000 miles to see.

Prehistoric rock art is one of the best known sites, the Chauvet cave. The cave can be found in south France’s Ardeche Region, along the bank the river Ardeche. This cave was first discovered near Pont-d’Arc by Jean-Marie Chauvet’s small cavers team. The importance of Chauvet Cave is due to two things: the first, its aesthetic. Quality of these Palaeolithic cave paintingsTheir great age. With one exception, all of the cave art paintings have been dated between 30,000 & 33,000 years ago. Under extreme security, Dr. Jean Clottes, a Frenchprehistorian, led the first team of researchers to Chauvet Cave in 1998.

Experts from newworldencyclopedia.org The cave was discovered by three amateur speleologists, Eliette Brunel deschamps, Christian Hillaire and Jean-Marie Chauvet. It was named for them. The cave is home to many preserved human artifacts, including paintings and prints. There are also fossilized remains and marks from various animals. Jean Clottes (French archaeologist) has done further research and revealed many details about the area. The dating of Chauvet Cave’s paintings is disputed. However, they have are thought to be from at least 30,000 years old. This makes them among the most ancient cave art. The style and content of the paintings suggest they weren’t created as part of hunting rituals, which has been suggested by other cave paintings. However, it is possible that these images may have been made for artistic reasons. Tralana Sanders (Kisangani, Dr Congo) last modified this week
