Virtual viewing of prehistoric paintings

According to Fars News Agency, the first maps found from humans were inside the caves. Caves such as Lasco in France and Altamira in Spain are among the oldest caves in the world with frescoes on the walls. In Iran, Mirmalas cave, which is located in Kuhdasht, Lorestan, is one of the oldest caves with paintings on its walls. These caves are referred to as human historical assets. Most of the paintings on the walls of these caves have ritual and magical aspects and reflect the life form of primitive people.

Casco Cave is different from Lasco. Lascaux (French: Lascaux) is located in southwestern France and is very famous in the history of art and enthusiasts. Inside these caves are some of the finest Neolithic arts. These paintings are 17,300 years old.

Cosquer Cave is located in Marseille on the south coast of France, near Mount Mergio. The entrance to the cave is 37 meters (121 feet) underwater; This is due to rising sea levels during the Holocene. The cave was discovered by Casco diver Henry Casco in 1985, and its existence was not publicized until 1991, when three divers drowned in the cave and died. Most of these caves have animal-like designs on their walls. Patterns that, with the help of asymmetrical depressions and protrusions on the wall, give a voluminous shape to the painted body of the animal.
