Cave of the Hands

Located in Argentina, the Cave of the Hands (Cueva de las Manos), is the main place to find Hand It cave art. The cave features stencils of hands (speculated to be made by spraying paint through bone-pipes) and is estimated to be between 9 and 13,000 years old.

Undoubtedly, the cave is most famous for the hand stencils, yet it is also home to drawings of patterns, animal and human figures, and other shapes.

One thought on “Cave of the Hands

  1. Almost all of what you say happens to be supprisingly accurate and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this with this light before. Your piece really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular subject matter goes. However at this time there is just one position I am not necessarily too cozy with and while I try to reconcile that with the central theme of the point, allow me see just what all the rest of the subscribers have to say.Well done.
