Revive the old painting on the cave rockery

At the Night of Researchers 2023, visitors had the opportunity to learn how and why our ancestors created these works of art and what the representations they painted on the cave walls meant through a joint conversation about cave painting.

In addition, they learned what the entire process of painting looked like, from collecting raw materials for paints and pulverizing them to make pigments, through making brushes and choosing tools, to actually applying the paint to the cave wall.

The bravest visitors tried their hand at painting replicas of cave drawings or their conceptual solutions on natron paper, using some of the materials used by our Paleolithic ancestors, such as charcoal.


At the end of the day, more than 200 children proudly took home their works of art, but also the knowledge of what it was like to be an artist in the distant past. It can be said that we have successfully "revived the old picture on the cave stone"!
