Finding Altamira 2016

There is not so much math in it. But the beginning of language is interesting also for mathematicians. The Altamira cave drawings are showing remarkable early drawing skills, representing real figures onto a cave. It reminds also of Plato's allegory. One riddle which comes up is how our ancestors 10'000 years ago managed to draw without light. THere are no marks of fire to be seen. Thanks to Craig Smorynski for telling about the movie:
