Paleolithic paintings in Lascaux Cave, France, are threatened by mold. These are among the oldest works of art in existence, dated at around 16,000 years old. This is reported in an article from Radio Netherlands Worldwide.

One thought on “Lascaux cave paintings threatened”
This is an important site as I believe there are a lot of good questions about the age of the earth. I am a Christian and an Art History Tutor, so the question of the age of artifacts comes up a lot.
I love the Lascaux Cave drawings. They show an advanced appreciation of the use of line, the rendering of form and also how far an artist can exaggerate proportions without looking ridiculous. I do hope we find a way of saving them.
I shall bookmark this site.
