A Recently-Discovered 44,000 Year Old Cave Painting tells the oldest known story by Griffith University....


Where did art begin? In fact, prehistory is a period of history in which no literature historical material exists. Although the concept of prehistoric age may be vague, as the days of literature historical material vary according to region and ethnicity, and there have been still many societies without letters in Africa or Oceania together. However, since there were also many semi-plastic forms that were full of liveliness, they had a huge impact on European avant-garde artists from the late 19th century.


Meanwhile, a team of archaeologists led by Griffith University has discovered a cave painting in Indonesia that is at least 44,000 years old and which portrays a group of part-human, part-animal figures – ‘therianthropes’ – hunting large mammals with spears or ropes, casting new light on the origin of modern human cognition.


In a cave, most of us would say — especially those of us who've seen Werner Herzog's Cave of Forgotten Dreams — and specifically on the walls of caves, where early humans drew the first representations of landscapes, animals, and themselves. But when did art begin? The answer to that question has proven more subject to revision. The well-known paintings of the Lascaux cave complex in France go back 17,000 years, but the paintings of that same country's Chauvet cave, the ones Herzog captured in 3D, go back 32,000 years. And just two years ago, Griffith University researchers discovered artwork on a cave on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi that turns out to be about 44,000 years old.
