These cave paintings found in Spain are now thought to be 40,800 years old, far older then previously estimated. The paintings show hand stencils and a bison pictured in yellow. This might indicate that those paintings were not even made by modern humans, but by their predecessors, the Neanderthals. Scientists haven’t reached consensus on this though. Although the hands and yellow bison were painted later than the red disks, it is still fascinating to see these signs of life of human beings who stood in this exact same place, 37.000 years ago.
