Lascaux: The Cave Paintings of the Ice Age

The Lascaux caves in southwestern France, in the Vezere Valley of the Dordogne, are home to 17,000-year-old Paleolithic cave paintings that vividly depict animals, humans and various geometric shapes. In order to preserve the paintings for future generations, the caves themselves have been off limits to visitors for decades. This winter, Ueno's National Museum of Nature and Science displays full-scale, official replicas of this ancient art and shines a light on how the Cro-Magnon humans that created the Lascaux pieces lived, what they looked like and why they decorated the caves with such striking imagery.
