Paleolithic Human Effigies


Castillo Teacher and Apprentice.jpg

We have a teacher speaking into the ear of the apprentice on the Gallery of Discs at the El Castillo Cave in Spain from approximately 34,000 years ago. What wisdom does he share? What story does he tell?


WomanB_1.jpg

This effigy of a young woman on the Gallery of Discs at the El Castillo Cave in Spain is from approximately 34,000 years ago. She is the oldest rediscovered  image of a woman. See how her hair is braided red, chin is strong and cheeks full. 


Men.jpg

This engraving on the Gorham Etching in Gibraltar from 36,000 years ago portrays two men - "Man-X" and the "Nordic Looking Man". One is the oldest rediscovered image of modern man. Who are they and why did the Paleolithic artist portray them with joined heads?
