The imagery left on cave walls by Stone Age painters has the power to touch us deeply, as if their intimate knowledge has remained in our very genes. In the remote caves of Lascaux, Font-du-Gaume and Altamira are some of the depictions of the surroundings of an ancient peoples impression, perceptions and thoughts. The pervasive images appear as the cave wall enacts almost a willingness to participate in a portrayal of an ancient world's written history.
