Caption

Restoring Lascaux cave paintings replica. The original Lascaux cave was closed to the public in 1963, with the Lascaux II replica opening nearby in 1983. Here, Francis Ringenbach is cleaning a painting in the replica of the 'Great Hall of the Bulls'. The original replica artist was Monique Peytral (born 1926). The Lascaux cave paintings in south-western France, around 17,000 years old, were painted by Cro-Magnon man, an early European culture of modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens), using red, brown and yellow ochre, and black manganese dioxide. They may have had religious and artistic significance. Photographed in 2010.
