Lascaux Caves (C/N)

Lascaux is a complex of caves in southwest France famous for it’s Paleolithic cavern paintings, which are the best preserved art to date. The paintings are estimated to be 17, 300 years old, and consist mostly of large animals, most of which are known from fossil evidence to have lived in the area at the time.

While talking to Ellie Sattler while trapped inside the Safari Lodge, Dr. Ian Malcolm brings up the lives of the men who painted the art at Lascaux, while comparing the “advances in life” today.
