There are a lot of theories about the reason prehistoric humans drew and sculpted. Some say that it's pure art, other believe that it's a communication form, let it be from shamans, magic, beliefs or knowledge.

In its naturalness, Chauvet cave art displays instinctive impulsiveness of creativity and freedom of communication rooted in intellect that is recognizable as the substratum in all artistic endeavors'' ¹
