“Are we cro-magnons ?”
Brussels Diplomatic, 3 December 2014
“Let us discover our history with one of the rare testimonies of the prehistory and the refinement of its contemporaries. Which is to be discovered to the “Cinquantenaire”: the cro-magnons and the cave of Lascaux. After a tour in America, the itinerant exhibition makes currently a stopover in the European capital, before Japan.
An exhibition during which we can go off to explore the reconstruction as before of rock paintings, 20000-year-old old, discovered to Montignac in September, 1940. The palaeolithic atmosphere is reconstituted, thus let us go off to explore this civilization and let us understand one of the first masterpieces of the humanity. And let us imagine how these people lived, went hunting, ate, got dressed… from not only their paintings, but also from bones, objects of their everyday life, and their own reproduction from their skeleton.”
