Why are there no human depictions in Chauvet?
There are no human depictions in the manner that we tend to think of them today. There are, however, depictions of human body parts, such as pubic triangles. We do not see these engraved female genitalia in the film. Toward the end of the cave, at the very end of the film, we discover, on an elegant rock pendant, a composite representation associating the lower half of a woman's body intertwined with a bison and another animal that is probably a lion.
'The Final Passage' - a cinematic and immersive short film of Chauvet Cave in France, available until June 7th. Comment
