CAVE ART DISCOVERED ON THIS DAY IN 1940

Near Montignac, France, a collection of prehistoric cave paintings
were discovered by four teenagers who stumbled upon the ancient artwork after following their dog down a narrow entrance into a
cavern. The 15,000- to 17,000-year-old paintings, consisting mostly
of animal representations, are among the finest examples of art
from the
Upper Paleolithic period.
