Picture of the day 2/100 🖼 The oldest known painting (so far ). Yesterday we had a really old painting and today the oldest currently known to us. It might not look like much but these 44,000-year-old❗️ cave paintings in Indonesia may be not only the oldest figurative artwork, but also the oldest example of pictorial storytelling 🦖 #cavepaintings #historyofart #artalongtimeago #art #artist #artlover #arthistory #artoninstagram #apaintingaday #museumathome #museumfromhome #onlinemuseum #virtualmuseum #virtualcollection #painter #painting #🎨 #artnewsletter #learnart #theartnewsletter #iloveart #artinmylife #moreart

Picture of the day 1/100 🖼 Where else to start than with one of the oldest know pieces of art in the history of humankind? This painting can be found alongside a number of other animals in the #caveofaltamira What I am most fascinated by is that the paintings in this cave have been completed over a period of 20.000 years! ... I can't sit down an concentrate on a painting for more than 20 minutes. #cavepaintings #historyofart #artalongtimeago #art #artist #artlover #arthistory #artoninstagram #apaintingaday #museumathome #museumfromhome #onlinemuseum #virtualmuseum #virtualcollection #painter #painting #🎨 #artnewsletter #learnart #theartnewsletter #iloveart #artinmylife #moreart

Ajanta Murals: Nothing less than the birth of Indian Art. Recognised as some of the greatest art produced by humankind in any century, The Murals of Ajanta are among the finest surviving examples of ancient Indian art, particularly expressive painting that present emotion through gesture, pose and form. Dating back from the 2nd century BCE to about 480 CE, the paintings impart the teachings of Buddha and his experiences during his various reincarnations. Even today, the colours glow with a brilliant intensity. Famous for their masterful line-work, the use of natural pigments, the artistry achieved with only primitive tools, the sensual forms and the harmony of the overall composition; the method of execution is what makes these wall paintings unique in the world. . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . _ . ______________________________________________ # #asiaartfestival #asia #art #festival #artfestival #artform #painting #cavepaintings #muralart #ajantacaves #ajantaellora #historicalart #arthistory #ancientart #indianart #ancientindia #incredibleindia #culturalart #maharashtra #ajantapaintings #ajanta #muralpaintings #wallmurals #mural #murals #ajantamurals

( The First Written Language ) Last in a series of images from Lefkoşa Our Ancestors emerged as a species 200.000 years ago. They figured out how to use Language about 100.000 years later. Cave Art was the first form of language used by Homo Sapiens. We have many Languages today but the language of Cave Art and Street Art ( Graffiti ) is still in tact. #thefirstlanguage #streetart #graffiti #expression #thewrittenword #expressionism #language #lefkoşa #neolithiclanguage #cavepaintings #unspokenwords #silentlanguage

My first half term as an NQT has come to an end and I am not afraid to say that I’m absolutely exhausted. It’s been tough getting used to being a full time teacher, especially in these crazy times. Looking back on the past half term I’ve learnt a lot and have lots of things I’m proud of. In particular the history work my class have done on the Stone Age really stands out - they’ve made such a great effort in our lessons. I’ve made their cave paintings into a ‘cave entrance’ over the archway into our library (which I’m lucky enough to have in my bubble ) and have loved seeing the children’s faces when they walked in the morning after I’d done it! They kept coming up to me and saying “it looks like a cave!” which is just what I wanted. Now however I’m very ready to have a break. #teachersofinstagram #teacher #cavepaintings #displays #schoollibrary #historydisplay #primaryhistory #primaryhistorymatters #childrenscavepaintings #historyteacher #lowerks2 #primaryschoolhistory #classroomdisplay

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Marc Etherington's exhibition 'Cave Paintings' is now showing at Hugo Michell Gallery! Of the exhibition, Etherington states:  "The show is about how since moving to Canada a year and a half ago, I have been feeling isolated and am missing my family and friends. It’s hard starting off in a new country. I’ve found solace is listening to Nick Cave’s music which is like listening to a familiar old friend. These paintings are about me wondering what Nick and I would get up to if we were best friends."

The Cave of Altamira is located in Spain. It is renowned for prehistoric parietal cave art featuring charcoal drawings and polychrome paintings of contemporary local fauna and human hands. The earliest paintings were applied during the Upper Paleolithic, around 36,000 years ago.The site was discovered in 1868 and in 1985 was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The cave can no longer be visited, for conservation reasons. Using uranium-thorium dating, researchers in 2008 discovered that the paintings themselves were probably created over a span of 20,000 years. A later study in 2012 confirmed that there were at least 10,000 years between different paintings in the caves. While researchers don’t know exactly why these cave paintings were created, their production certainly shows that these cultures had the leisure time to produce them. This points to cultures that weren't only surviving, but thriving. In terms of a specific purpose, some experts believe that the paintings may have been used during a ritual where a shaman would enter the cave and go into a trance in order to make contact with spirits. A modern interpretation of the one of the most famous painting, red bison from the Altamira cave in my shop as a printable. #altamira #altamiracave #altamiracavepaintings #cavepainting #cavepaintings #caveart #paleoart #paleoartist #paleolifestyle #paleolife #paleolithic #paleolithicart #prehistoric #prehistory #prehistoricanimals #redochre #primitiveart #bison #bisonpainting #archaeologylovers #archaeologyaddict #archaeologistgift #giftsforarchaeologists #rusticwalldecor #ancientelegance #simpilicityisbeauty #makeitmeaningful

presents P H O T O | @ancientartarchive • Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc Cave | Four Horses | 36,000 year old cave paintings | France • The Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc Cave is a cave that contains some of the best-preserved figurative cave paintings in the world, as well as other evidence of Upper Paleolithic life. Discovered on December 18, 1994, it is considered one of the most significant prehistoric art sites and the UN’s cultural agency UNESCO granted it World Heritage status on June 22, 2014. In addition to the paintings and other human evidence, they also discovered fossilized remains, prints, and markings from a variety of animals, some of which are now extinct. The dates have been a matter of dispute but a study published in 2012 supports placing the art in the Aurignacian period, approximately 32,000–30,000 years BP. A study published in 2016 using additional 88 radiocarbon dates showed two periods of habitation, one 37,000 to 33,500 years ago and the second from 31,000 to 28,000 years ago with most of the black drawings dating to the earlier period. • F E A T U R E D T A G | #igworldclub_archaeology • Selection and text of @_ .vegvisir._ • M A I L | igwarchaeology @gmail .com • M E M B E R S | @igworldclub_thematic • F O L L O W U S | @igworldclub @igworldclub_nature @igworldclub_reflections @igworldclub_lakes @igworldclub_museum @igworldclub_crafts @igworldclub_cats#thematic_091219 #igworldclub #archaeology #archeology #archeologia #arqueologia #archeologie #archaeologie #antiquearchaeology #archaeological #ancientbuilding #archaeologicalsite #archeologicalsite #ancientarchitecture #ancientruins #ancientcity #ancient #ancientworld #archaeologylovers #heritage #archeotravelers #visitfrance #france #oldcavepaintings #cavepaintings #ancientpaintings #ancientcave #Paleolithic

#Inktober2019 Day 16: #Wild ⁣ the #Anthropocene ⁣ ⁣ Today’s #Inktober challenge of “Wild” has been the most difficult yet - and when I was thinking of what the hell I was going to draw I had complete illustrator’s block (is that a thing? ). I wanted to dive deeper into the prompt and ask you to interpret this illustration.⁣ ⁣ What do you think this conceptual #illustration means? I am open to interpretation of course - because I am trying to articulate exactly why my brain spat out this idea. I drew some of the first #scientificillustrations known to man - the #Lascaux #cavepaintings estimated about 17,000 years ago, encompassed in an unbroken #DNA chain forming the full chain where the #nucleotides resemble bars like that of a cage, holding extinct, threatened, to common species - with the single variable in the middle (us; and of another Lascaux cave painting ) as the overarching influence of change seen within our control, or our orb of influence as a species.⁣ ⁣ So I challenge you to consider “Wild” and how you interpret it? What it is, what it represents, what it used to be, what we used to be, what it may never be again, what we hope it will represent for our and consequent generations to come, and what we have changed about it under our influence. ⁣ ⁣ Drawn with @sakuraofamerica 005, 01, and 02 #pigmamicron pens and Koi #watercolors ⁣ ⁣ #scienceillustration #sakuraofamerica #sakurainktober #sakurainktober2019 #art #science #scicomm #sciart #natureart #nature #wildlife #conservation #human #influence #createwithblick #artist #artistsoninstagram #theillustrationheredoesnotnecessarilyreflecttheviewsoftheartist

Imagining the lives of the artists who made these cave paintings...voices from the past who somehow can reach across the years to touch our souls today. I wonder what they would think of our world now...
