Did you know…

… that today is Lascaux Cave Paintings Day? A collection of prehistoric cave paintings near Montignac, France, were discovered on this day in 1940 by four teenagers who stumbled upon the ancient artwork after following their dog down a narrow entrance into a cavern. The 15,000- to 17,000-year-old paintings, consisting mostly of animal representations, are among the finest examples of art from the Upper Paleolithic period.
