Stone Age cave paintings have been found in many caves in Europe. Painted between 35,000 and 15,000 years ago by early modern humans we call Cro-Magnons. The paintings are magical, often realistic and depict mainly large wild animals though hand prints are common. The images were painted using charcoal, powdered rocks and minerals mixed with water or fat. We cannot be sure exactly why people made these paintings.
