Stone Age art illustrates early human creativity through small portable objects, cave paintings, and early sculpture and architecture. Create a timeline of the Paleolithic, Mesolithic, and Neolithic Periods of the Stone Age, giving a brief description of the art from each period.

Multiple engraved and painted images of female sexual organs, animals and geometric figures discovered in southern France are believed to be the first known wall art. Radiocarbon dating of the engravings, described in the latest Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, reveals that the art was created 37, years ago. Since this site, Abri Castanet in southern France, is very close to Chauvetit is likely that the artists in both cases came from what is known as the Aurignacian culture, which existed until about 28, years ago.
Naked except for red body paint and string around their waists, they aimed bows and arrows at the plane flying over their clearing in the Amazon jungle. This was the moment when the 21st Century came face to face with the Stone Age - and the pictures of the event astonished the world.

If he has known her a long time, he might be tempted to describe her in terms of what has survived from the girl he knew — the sting of emotion that starts, always, in her nose and restores, instantly, the freshness of her face and the color of her eyes; the shimmer of her skin, which is so white since she's forsworn the sun that it can light his way in a very dark room; the miracle of her smell, which is the breath of renewal, and so also can light his way; the amazing erotic architecture of her back, with its archipelago of beauty marks unchanged from the moment he first beheld them, almost as if they'd gone untouched. But that's giving her, and the wonder of her age, short shrift. Better to describe her in terms of what has flourished, in the woman she's become: the frankness, the sexiness, the humor, the urgency, the knowledge, the gusty play of throatiness and girlishness in her voice.

A stunning haul of ice-age art found in a limestone cave has shed new light on how our prehistoric ancestors lived 13, years ago. David Derbyshire reports on some clever academic detective work. To the untrained eye, it most closely resembles a sock, a boomerang or maybe, after a long, hard stare, the head of a long-billed bird. But according to some of the UK's leading experts on ice-age art, this highly stylised image, carefully engraved in a Derbyshire limestone cave 13, years ago, may be the earliest nude in the history of British art.
