Seals Cave wall painting. Rtc Roger Cummiskey
Oldest paintings in the world

The six paintings of seals are the only known artistic images created by Neanderthal man.
Their age has been put between 42.300 and 43.500 years old.

Making them by far the oldest works of art in the world and a good 10.000 years older than the previous record holder, the 32.000-year-old images in the Chauvet Cave in southern France.

Neanderthal man, until very recently, was considered as ape-like and incapable of symbolism and creating artistic works. The cave paintings have dispelled this myth.
