Abstract
Indeed, at that time, men started to communicate thanks to the rock art.
The term rock art qualifies artistic manifestations on rocky supports. This form of art is the only cultural event that has continued for more than 3000 years without interruption.
For the realized ones, the prehistoric men had several techniques:
- Engraving, where the artists hammered the rock support with a hard stone.
- Painting: the artists used colored powders that came from crushed minerals. The painting allowed them to represent the manes, hairs and fur of animals.
Rock paintings could mark a territory of habitation or hunting.
