One of the most famous images from the Lascaux caves is the Great red and black horse found in the “Hall of the Bulls,” located at the entrance chamber and occupying the panel’s central portion. This image is estimated to be around 17,000 years old and features a series of large bulls and other animals like horses and deer. The bulls are depicted dynamically and energetically, with twisting and turning bodies and overlapping horns. If I were the artist, I would hope that future viewers would see the strength and power of these animals and perhaps even feel a sense of reverence for them. I might have created the image to honour and celebrate the natural world and the animals that were so integral to our survival at the time. My impression of the world the image portrays is awe and danger, where humans live close to powerful and unpredictable creatures.
