Cave Paintings 30,000 Years Ago
Cave paintings are designs painted on the walls and ceilings of caves. Prehistoric man created cave paintings by mixing all sorts of things like water, soil, plant juice, and more to make paint and by building brushes from sticks, leaves, small stones, and animal hair. There are multiple theories for why prehistoric man created cave paintings. One theory is that they painted representations of past events. Another theory is that they used cave paintings as a way to teach hunting techniques. One other theory is that they created cave paintings because they thought that by painting a desired event, that event might actually happen. Speleology is the scientific study of caves and similar landscapes, their structure, make-up, history, life forms, and about every other aspect of them.
