Cave Art of the Stone Age

Archaeologists have discovered some amazing artwork done by the prehistoric people. This art has been found in caves throughout Europe. This "Cave Art" is a major piece of evidence in trying to figure out what things were like in the Stone Age. From the artwork, we can see what was important to the people. In most of the drawings, animals are the major focus. By seeing so much focus on animals, we can conclude that animals were a major part of their life. Meat to eat, bones for tools, and hide for clothing, the animal was extremely important for the Stone Age people. Also, in many of the pieces of art, it appears the people are hunting. The Cave art of the Stone Age showed what's important to the people of the Stone Age. What would your Cave Art show? What's important to you?
