3. The Cave Paintings

This cave is painted high on the ceiling. The artists painted the same animals over and over, as you can see. Bison, red deer, boar and horses were the chosen animals.

It is difficult to find any animal except the bison.

Here is a handsome bull.

What about this painting causes this bison to appear so stately?

Write down the things that are different from the bison you just saw.

Can you find the head of this bison?

Can you find the horns of this bison?

What is the bison doing?

Would you believe sleeping?
