Lillian Amro ART 101 Chapter 1 Discussion: The Caves of Chauvet and Lascaux Both Cave paintings have several paintings that are very similar, but each have something different to it. For example, the style of art is both similar, but in the paintings of Lascaux the art has more colors and more different varieties of angles (such as the horse in frontal view). In the Chauvet paintings there is more animals included like bears, hyenas, mammoths, and panthers. I’m not saying that there aren’t animals in the Lascaux paintings but in the Chauvet paintings there was more animals included. Both paintings tell a different story about each, for example like the people who painted them. In the Lascaux paintings it is clear the people who painted them were from a tribe that was sedentary, using domesticated animals such as the cows. The paintings of the Chauvet showed the different types of predatory animals. This shows to me that the Chauvet people were a strong and furious tribe that were able to hunt these animals.
