Cave of Forgotten Dreams

The Chauvet Caves in France were first discovered in 1994. They contain the earliest known examples of cave art. Visitors are not allowed to enter because of the delicate nature of the atmosphere within the caves, but film maker Werner Herzog has made a 3D documentary in which he explores the caves and their incredible contents.
The images of animals are very sophisticated, showing a beautiful understanding of line, tone and even movement.
