The Cave Art Paintings of the Chauvet Cave

The Horse is found near the Owl in Chauvet Cave, and has been drawn using the same technique. The figure is complete, showing details such as the full mane, its eye and a furry chest. However, this engraving is not entirely representational, as the legs taper into lines, whilst other lines echo the mane and the back. There are also unexplained parallel lines under the Horse.
