Time for a geek girl moment :) I just heard about, "The Cave of Forgotten Dreams", a 3D documentary film by Werner Herzog about the Chauvet Cave in southern France.
What's inside the cave? Hundreds of animal paintings, most from about 30,000 years ago, depicting at least 13 different species, including some rarely or never found in other ice age paintings. There are not just the familiar animals of the hunt that predominate in Paleolithic cave art, like horses, cattle, reindeer, etc., but also predatory animals like lions, panthers, bears, owls, and hyenas. The soft, clay-like floor of the cave has even retained the paw prints of cave bears! The cave is believed to have been untouched for approx. the past 25,000 years until its re-discovery in 1994. The cave is carefully preserved and the general public is not allowed to enter.
Why is this so cool? Paleolithic artists incorporated the subtle bulges and contours of the wall into their art which means the experience of their hybrid sculptural/pictorial art simply cannot be replicated in a 2D photographic reproduction. Also, the sounds and other non-visual stimuli present in the cave environment would have imparted an influence. This film is in 3D and will give a sensory experience much closer to what Paleolithic artists intended.
One caveat. I've seen a trailer for this and it seems that all the lighting used inside the cave is bright white. In keeping with generating an authentic viewing of the art as a Paleolithic experience, it really should have been more torch-like in my opinion. Flickering warm torchlight gives a vastly different visual experience than modern florescent floodlights. But still, it looks like a film not to be missed!
