The song goes this way.... "Before the fall, when they wrote it on the wall, when there wasn't even any Hollywood; they heard the call and they wrote it on the wall, for you and me and we understood." Too good...! :-) Thanks for the post!

The Spanish comic series is a series of adventures by a group of cavemen dressed as modern people with bits and pieces of fur clanging to their bodies to show that they are pre-historic, similar to flintstones.. It was in the era when our parents were young.. Hey Alden,

Picasso has been found to quote many a time "after Altamira, all is decadence". Many polychrome paintings at Altamira Cave are famous in Spanish popular culture!

That the discoverer of the paintings int he cave was never given credit for his discovery and only after he died 18 years later, the Scientific society who'd accused Sautuola of lying took back their words and asked for justice for a man who had already lost his life! Really interesting! Thanks for the post! Hey vareeja,

However, in 1902, Emile Cartailhac emphatically admitted his mistake in his famous article..His 8 year old daughter, Maria, is supposed to be the real ‘discoverer’ of this fine piece of history. The main paintings in these caves are that of bison, deer, boars and horses. These are the most commonly seen figures.The Altamira caves are one of the biggest and greatest collection of cave paintings that were ever discovered. The technology used by them is a little akin to modern day – 3D technology. The best part about this is that the effects have been achieved by using just three colors – ochre, red and black. Sautuola was ridiculed by the Scientific society..

A fellow countryman maintained that the paintings had been produced by a contemporary artist, on Sautuola's orders. Sautuola was ridiculed by the Scientific society.. However, in 1902, Emile Cartailhac emphatically admitted his mistake in his famous article.. He admitted he was deeply wrong, emphasized the importance of Altamira, accused himself of holding back the progress of his science, and harshly criticised himself for doing an injustice to an honest man and rejecting a thing without any investigation.. But Sautuola had died 18 years earlier.. There are also recent discoveries about the Altamira caves that suggest some of the paintings were completed over thousands of years, not just by individual artists in their own lifetime..!
