Cave of Forgotten Dreams

Last night Seba and I watched this awe-inspiring documentary by the great German director Werner Herzog.
He was allowed to film in the normally inaccessible Chauvet Cave, home to an extraordinary bestiary
 of hundreds of animal wall paintings created around 35,000 years ago. These beautiful and stunning
artworks are the oldest visual representations known to have been created by man.
What an astonishing journey into the mysterious world of our collective ancestors!
