Lascaux Cave Exhibition

The story told by the Lascaux exhibition happened less than 200 centuries ago. A time not so long ago when men, known as Cro-Magnons, similar to us in every way except for their culture, turned a little cave in Southwest France into a prehistoric sanctuary. The Lascaux exhibition offers an entirely new and absolutely faithful view of a section of the cave that has never before been shown to the public: the Nave and the Shaft. Five life-size movable replicas, or stone veils, recreate with total exactitude the work of artists who lived 20,000 years ago. This is the first time an exclusive exhibition of the art of a decorated prehistoric cave has traveled the globe. Our group of students really enjoyed this journey to the past!
