Cave Paintings: Children Did Them

I’ve often argued that cave paintings were children’s work.

The main art form was finger flutings, decorative lines made by people running their fingers along cave walls.

“So far, we haven’t found anywhere that adults fluted without children,” Cooney said in a statement. “Some of the children’s flutings are high up on the walls and on the ceilings, so they must have been held up to make them or have been sitting on someone’s shoulders.”
