Cave Painting

Altamira, 26 may (EFE)
Breaking news from Spain!
Group of archeologists found hidden chamber in the prehistoric cave of Altamira, Spain - World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Recently was discovered a partially blocked passage and after its further excavation, they were led to hidden chamber with cave paintings in perfect condition.
Most striking is a ceiling painting of a bird done with charcoal, ocre and haematite.
Famed archaeologist/adventurer Dr. Henry J. Ones immediately, even without glasses, was able to date the newly discovered painting as a Upper Paleolithic one i.e. about 12,500 years BCE. The bird was of unknown to the ornithologists kind and opened heating debates.
In his excitation Dr. Henry J. Ones began to remove layers of dust and for his great frustration found a signature of a contemporary artist – “Stefano ’2011”. Also a barely visible text was deciphered as “Entirely done in Ultrafractal 5.04”.
As all this was not enough, a quote from famous artist Picasso was found - "after Altamira, all is decadence".
Stay tuned for news updates.

Whoa. Like a dove painted with blood. One of the best examples I've seen of toeing the line between realism and representation.

Well, the colours, the feel, the bird that almost seems dying, well, dystopia is what it brought to my mind, apocalyptic future vision of man kind if we keep on going the way we are going. Of course, everything happens in cycles, the end will be yet another beginning as it always have been.
