Since the discovery of cave art in France and Spain century ago, scholars have been at odds and at a loss to understand why the paintings and other artwork that were created; and, the artistic ethos of the artwork themselves flies in the face of a people living in a state of 'primitive savagery'. This book offers the first systematic investigation in the facts that lie behind the various interpretation. It examines the content and context of all the paintings, integrating and low relief sculptures, the artistic technique employed in them, and the evidence to be drawn both from the prehistoric activities associated with the art and from the compatible activities on the part of existing non-literate peoples." – from rear panel blurb.
