    Here's an example of a cave drawing which has rocked the scientific world. And it shows that Cave Paintings definitely tell a story, but not an easy story to interpret.

    My interpretation of it is different than both given in the link. I can't explain the hunters state of arousal, but it might reflect his love for the hunt. Or it might represent what the first critique suggests. But if the horse knows the man, why is he hiding in the shadows and why does he need the club rather than rope to restrain him if sex is his goal?

    But I interpret the shadows that show him in the dark, and the front half of the horse in the dark with the horses rear in the light, and the corresponding light matching up on the cave wall as him lying in wait for the horse as it passes him when he then clubs it. Either to catch it as transportation or to kill it for food.

    Archie, google "uncyclopedia".

    How many times have you been told to fact check?

    Did you even read the article?

    I read the explanations and disagreed with them so I gave my own interpretation of the paintings meaning. But I did take it at face value that it was a serious article. After looking more closely, I'm embarrassed that I didn't see that it's not based in fact. Thanks for pointing it out. I'll know better regarding that site in the future.
