Origins of Art
Early art often depicts the struggles of early man.
The hunt is a major theme carried through this age, animals are depicted being chased and killed by people.
Animal paintings created by hunters were a means of capturing the spirits of their prey.
Theory suggests that Cro-Magnon man created art, as he believed that his creation of a depicted animal or hunt would somehow insure that there would be good hunting with plentiful animals.
