Cave paintings started approximately 40,000 years ago during the upper Paleolithic Period. The pictures are mainly of animals such as bison, horses, aurochs, and deer. The colors were limited to yellow, brown, charcoal, red, hematite, and manganese oxide. Contrasted to the naturalistic animal paintings, the drawings of humans are more schematic and rare. The artists were believed to be respected elders and shamans.
