Unshroud the earliest discovered human works of art with this fascinating   study of Pleistocene cave paintings. Viewers will travel to three sites—Chauvet and Lascaux in France and Altamira in Spain—that predate the last Ice Age and learn how our Cro-Magnon ancestors used surprisingly advanced techniques to create their paintings, including perspective and bas-relief. The program also discusses the subject matter of the works and how they provide a glimpse into prehistoric life. Both mysterious and educational, the program is sure to pique student interest in art and history.
