Such caves with the oldest decor can be found all over the world: in Europe, Africa, Australia, North and South America.
Many centuries have passed since then. Painting, drawing and sculpture have acquired a rich history, at the same time the animalistic genre - paintings by famous artists are the sound evidence of this - has remained no less popular and is in demand both among artists and among art lovers who want to purchase such works.
