Horse, from the Lascaux caves, France.

This prehistoric cave painting, discovered in 1940, is not thought to have been painted as a decoration by the cave dwellers but as an aid to hunting. They believed that by painting animals, they were making easier the hunting of them. In this picture we can see some of the spears and arrows fired at the horse during the hunt. The background to this picture is made of different vinyls to represent the contours and coldness of the cave walls and the available detail of the horse is depicted by wools.
