    I love cave drawings! Your right, some take them for granted! That first mark, opened the door to awareness.

    At 3.19 it looks like a phone number for those hand prints! Some birds create art to attract mates.

    That "one off" looks how my friends and I would draw "stone henge" when we were in early grade school.

    hmm i'm a bit sceptical, I reckon humans used sticks and dirt to show eachother signs and pictures, waaaaay before they engraved it into an object. The ingravings in objects are then likely a result of ppl drawing in dirt.

  • Al-Ikram Chowdory on March 22, 2017

    most likely a kid invented drawing graphic

    See, that's what you call an art; not something what you drew or wrote on that public bathroom's wall. 🌚
