Niaux, France. Stag in natural relief. 10/8 Here we see a most remarkable, even sensational utilization of a natural relief. In this "composition" the artist built an image about the suggestion conveyed to him by a hallow in the rock. Evidently, this concavity showed itself to him a stag's head, seen from in front, or from behind. A rocky shoulder to the right obviously suggested antlers, and it would appear that the artist forthwith defined them

Niaux, France. Bison with two black arrows. 10/11 Here once more we find evidence of a sense of creativity whence issued the development of the black horse seen in the proceeding slide, but this time applied to a bison. The animal, 39" long, rests on a rocky scale, securely positioned with its front feet on one side and its hind feet on the other.

Two heavily defined ritual arrows, represented by converging lines, wound the bison in its right fla

Niaux, France. III Small wounded ibex. 14/4 Between and to the right of the two preceding bison is an ibex of much smaller stature. The size of the ibex may have been deliberated, to minimize its importance vis-à-vis the bison. Of the panel. (In any case, the relation of the ibex to the bison gives no clue to its comparative age. The head of the ibex seems to droop under the impact of the blows it has received: two javelins in the chest.

Niaux, France. Salon Noir (III) Bull engraved in clay. 14/10 The clay on the ground was a convenient setting for sketches and even complete engravings. A good number of these must have been effaced by visitors, whether from prehistoric or more recent times.

Here-- in and area to the left of the Salon Noir at the foot of the wall overhanging so as to make passage impossible -- is the engraved sketch of a bull 18 inches long, done in an unquestionabl

Niaux, France. Trout engraved in clay. 17/4 As in the cave of nearby Bedeilhac, these clay surfaces of Niaux are rich in engravings. Unfortunately, casual visitors often failed to recognize them for what they were, trampling and frequently obliterating them. Those engravings which are preserved are the exceptions, an example being this excellent trout, measuring 11 3/4" in length and found on one of the overhangs of this gallery, before coming to t

Niaux, France. The Bison of the "cups". 17/5 One of the major works of Niaux -- indeed, of Quaternary art itself -- is this bison. Engraved in clay, it bears witness to the technique and graphic genius of the Magdalenian artist. In its way this work calls to mind the art of a Matisse, A Picasso, or one of the great Japanese print-makers. Here we see how, on this clay surface, natural cups were formed, little hollows created by drops of water fall

Niaux, France. The Galleries. Bison of the "Cups" detail. 17/6 As noted, one of these cups was chosen; it served to form the globe of the eye, and with this as the probable starting point, the admirable design of a bison unfolded. We have already commented on the sure and expert line, freely engraved in the clay. But equally remarkable is the quality of the design which developed from the point-of-departure of the natural "eye," the cup. Inspire

Niaux, France. Sketch of horse with arrows. 17/11 A major point of interest in Niaux is the symbolism and abstract character of its subject matter. This is true even when the obscurity of the symbol or the abstraction makes it difficult or impossible to comprehend the composition.

Here a long horizontal red arrow, profusely barbed, is shown, the barbs seen on the left. Above it is the sketch of a small red horse, the muzzle pointing to the right

Rouffignac, France. The "DuBois" rhinoceros. The second rhinoceros of the frieze, 43" long, is to all appearance a female. It is likely that the longer, but also thinner and sharper, horns were attributes of the females, which could well have used them not merely for protection but to guide their young as well. An inscription, cut with a knife, of the name "DuBois" was done apparently in recent times by a local cave-explorer, ignorant of prehistor
