Caption: Lascaux cave paintings. These paintings are on the walls of the Lascaux caves in Dordogne, south- western France. There are several halls; this is the Great Hall of the Bulls, which contains a 20- metre-long fresco of bulls, stags and horses. The caves contain some of the earliest known artwork, dating from around 17,000 years ago. They were painted by Cro-Magnon man, an ancestor of modern humans that lived in Europe.
