The Oldest Enigma of Humanity: The Key to the Mystery of the Paleolithic Cave Paintings
By: Bertrand David
What's it's about:
Thirty thousand years ago our prehistoric ancestors painted perfect images of animals on walls of tortuous caves, most often without any light. How was this possible? What meaning and messages did the cavemen want these paintings to convey? In addition, how did these perfect drawings come about at a time when man’s sole purpose was surviving? And why, some ten thousand years later, did startlingly similar animal paintings appear once again, on dark cave walls?
Scholars and archaeologists have for centuries pored over these works of art, speculating and hoping to come away with the key to the mystery. No one until now has ever come close to elucidating either their origin or their meaning.
In their stunning book and for the first time, David and Lefrère, after working together for years, give us a new understanding of an art lost in time, revealing what had until recently remained unexplainable—the oldest enigma in humanity has been solved.
Just can't get in to it, have re started it four times since yesterday ,and still can't get past the chapter I'm on.
There's nothing I like about, and it's not keeping my attention at all. With that said I would like to say thinks to NetGalley for at least giving me a chance at reading it in a change for my honest opinion
