Book Description Harry N. Abrams [1987], 1987. Hardback, 206 pages, 2°, Dust-Jacket slightly torn and soiled. The prehistoric cave in France's Dordogne region, with its 17, 000-year-old animal paintings discovered accidentally in 1940, was sealed in 1963 due to deterioration in atmospheric conditions. Two decades later, television producer Ruspoli went underground to take the photographs that form the basis of this handsome, comprehensive book. The murals he recordedelegant renderings of animals in stately friezes, courting rituals and overlapping groupingsare here beautifully reproduced. The text elucidates the theory that the paintings were created as part of a paleolithic mythology, with Lascaux a religious sanctuary. Bolstering this, the author shows stenciled handprints, shamanistic human figures and arcane symbols (perhaps prewriting). He also includes an abundance of background information, including scientific data on both the animals and the artists. This is a fascinating and beautiful addition to the library of amateur anthropologist and art lover alike. Book Language/s: en. Bookseller Inventory # A19113

Book Description Harry N. Abrams Inc., New York, 1987. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Photographs (illustrator). 1st Edition. A lovely, clean First Edition/1st Printing copy, in very much About Fine Condition, with like dustjacket. The book's oversize format and brilliant color photography by the distinguished prehistorian and television producer Mario Ruspoli bring the incredible paleolithic artwork to us like few have done previously. Written with a sensitive introduction to the world of Paleolithic man as well as a meticulous description of the Lascaux art. This volume's attention to quality, typical of Abrams extensive history of Art publications, is herein enhanced appreciably by the extensive access to the actual cave paintings granted by the French Government. This is fortunate, indeed, for these photographs were essentially the final view permitted of the Stone Age life and world of Lascaux, before the government began to rigidly enforce the cave's closure, due to the dimming of the precious "Sistine Ceiling of the Cave Man" with molds and fungi generated by bright lights and the warmth and breath of countless visitors, since the site was first discovered in the late 1940s. This large volume will require additional postage for expedited or international delivery. Ships FAST!! and securely (in a well-padded box with free domestic tracking) from Southern California.
