Virtual Lascaux Cave. Virtual reality screen display of palaeolithic paintings in the caves of Lascaux, France. Coloured murals of large mammals are seen on the cave walls painted by Cro-Magnon man 17,000 years ago. The viewer navigates around the caves by wearing a virtual reality headset while operating a spaceball tracking mechanism by hand. This computer reconstruction enables the animals to "come to life" in full-motion in caves named: Chamber of Felines, Hall of Bulls, etc. The real Lascaux caves are no longer open to the public. Professor Benjamin Britton is Director of the Lascaux Project, University of Cincinnati, USA.
