painting found near Altamira, Spain, is known as the "Falling Bison". The detail and
of anatomy draws us to believe that these paintings may have been for the purpose of
increasing animal fertility rather than success in the hunt as was orignally thought. At
animal populations may have been waning due to the warming of the European lands
after the last Ice
Age. "Creating" an animal in this way, the artist may have drawn details
thought to be important. The
paintings have been preserved since they are concealed deep in
the "bowels" of the earth, perhaps by
design as part of a magic ritual.
