Seing Lascaux again

Seing Lascaux again presents the four explorers, aged 13 to 18, who discovered the famous cave, at the moment of their expedition, in September 1940. But here, the cave has not been faithfully reconstructed, as can be seen at the International Centre of Parietal Art in Montignac, in the Périgord: here it is made from woollen panels and stacked up cardboard boxes. The lamps lighting up the night underground are mobile phones and the bestiary is composed of small plastic animals. Just enough to recreate an imaginary prehistory and nothing more, with image-makers and deer-headed dancers but which creates a thirst for knowledge.
