In one famous panel (a little bit is shown above) an entire pride of lions is illustrated, and the feeling of movement and power of the animals is tangible even in photographs of the cave taken in poor light and at low resolution. Archaeological material in Chauvet cave's deposits include thousands of animal bones, including the bones of at least 190 cave bears ( The remains of hearths, an ivory spearhead and a human footprint have all been identified within the cave's deposits.Chauvet Cave was discovered in 1994 by Jean-Marie Chauvet; the relatively recent discovery of this remarkably intact cave painting site has allowed researchers to closely control the excavations using modern methods.

This means that these images were created roughly 29-30,000 BCE, making them the third oldest figurative cave paintings in the world, after the Sulawesi animal pictures in Indonesia and the more primitive Fumane cave paintings (c.35,000 BCE) in Italy.

Some of these bones had been arranged in special position by the previous human inhabitants.

Amazingly, Chauvet's entire labyrinth of prehistoric art had been left undisturbed since a landslide sealed off the entrance about 25,000 years ago.

The dates have been a matter of dispute but a study published in 2012 supports placing the art in the Aurignacian period, approximately 32,000–30,000 BP.

The cave is situated above the previous course of the Ardèche River before the Pont d'Arc opened up.

It extends horizontally for nearly 500 meters (~1,650 feet) into the earth, and consists of two main rooms separated by a narrow hallway.

Over 420 paintings have been documented in the cave, including numerous realistic animals (reindeer, horses, aurochs, rhinoceros, bison, lions, cave bears among others), human hand prints, and abstract dot paintings.

Professor Terry O'Connor from the University of York's Department of Archaeology, who was involved in interpreting the data, said: "Representations of animals from the Paleolithic period have the potential to provide first-hand insights into the physical environment that humans encountered thousands of years ago.

However, the motivation behind, and therefore the degree of realism in these depictions is hotly debated." "The depictions of horses at Pech-Merle in particular have generated a great deal of debate.
