The Pech Merle cave, works of art in nature
The paintings in the Pech Merle cave date back to over 20 000 years and are in remarkable condition. The Punctuated horses painting is estimated to be more than 29 000 years old. The pieces, playing with the rock's relief, colors, and lights, represent some 70 animal species. The cave is vast, with a total length of more than 1.20 miles (2 km). Its formation during several million years makes it a memory of the Earth of real geological value.
