Cave of Forgotten Dreams

Werner Herzog’s Cave of Forgotten Dreams takes a peek into the Chauvet-Pont-d’Arc Cave in southern France, a site which contains the earliest-known cave paintings in the history of humanity dating back to approximately 30,000 to 32,000 years ago. The limestone cliff face overhanging the cave collapsed and, subsequently, sealed it off for thousands of years preserving the prehistoric art to near perfection. In 1994, it was discovered and, in 2010, its contents were finally shown to the masses. Truly mesmerizing!
