paintings to the most modern French artistic movements. This is not simply an art
history, or a treatise on aesthetics, but a living imprisonment of the creative
process in prose.

The artists may well have intended to give visual expression to the intercon-
nectedness of animal and human life. But whatever their purpose, the cave
paintings occupy a unique place at the dawn of human art. The mastery of
draftsmanship they display would not be paralleled for thousands of years. The
inhabitants of late Paleolithic Europe were sculptors as well. They were fond of
producing stone statuettes of women, often with exaggerated breasts, buttocks,
and genitals.
