Scientists say that people in their more or less its present form live on the Earth for a million years, but the earliest evidence of how the human mind have tried to capture in a symbolic form the world, there were only 100 000 years ago. Nothing like the older art of this date has not yet been found.
The earliest finds of this kind were made in Africa, a little more modern – in Spain and France, and even later – in Eastern Europe and in the European part of Russia.
Speaking about the new findings in the Czech Republic, the researchers say that these ancient European sculpture and drawings on the rocks allow much deeper look into the history of our ancestors, as in most works of art, usually encoded, some idea of communication as a visual symbol.
According to Jim Cook, an expert on the archeology of the British Museum, formerly in France were found similar figures and their age was estimated to be 23,000 years old, they were made of mammoth ivory.
