Published on February 9th, 2012 | by Admin1
Six paintings of seals are at least 42,000 years old and are the only known artistic images created by Neanderthal man, experts claim.
Professor Jose Luis Sanchidrian, from the University of Cordoba, described the discovery as ‘an academic bombshell’, as all previous art work has been attributed to Homo sapiens.
The paintings were found in the Nerja Caves, 35 miles east of Malaga in the southern region of Andalusia.
