Today's lesson objective is: The student will analyze the images found within the Niaux Cave, identify specific images, and hypothesize the interpretation of the images. Niaux Cave was discovered in the late 1800s. It is the result of glaciers melting a long time ago and eroding the rock to form the cave itself. Niaux Cave has many chambers that are connected by a winding passageway. The artwork is some of the most vivid and distinctive rock art in the world. When you first enter the cave, you will notice that there is not any rock art. As you progress through, though, you will finally notice abstract signs. They are grouped together like landmarks or navigation aids. Overall, the Niaux Cave is an excellent example of prehistoric cave art.
