From the first discovery of Altamira in 1870 to the digital creation of Lascaux IV in 2016, cave art has fascinated archaeologists, artists and the general public alike. Met with disbelief when originally presented as the work of prehistoric peoples, cave art revolutionised the perception of stone age life. But can we ever really know what it all means?
