Featured: Summaries of Cave Art/Rock Art Theories

My theories include: France’s Les Trois Freres Cave (Sorcerer, Bison-Man, Reindeer/Bison Pair and Markings), Africa’s Game Pass Shelter and Willcox Shelter, and Spain’s La Pasiega Cave.

Each summary includes a link to my full theory.

This theory is about the Sorcerer of Les Trois Freres Cave figure in France. The Sorcerer (also called the Shaman or Dancing Shaman) has antlers, a beard, tail — looks like it’s dancing. There is a large image in the Milky Way that I think is the Sorcerer in the cave. (Date: about 13,000 BC)

This theory is about two figures in the Cave of Les Trois Freres in France. One looks like a reindeer and the other is a bison-type image. There are images in the Milky Way that I think are the cave figures. (Date: about 13,000 BC)

Markings Next to Cave Figures

There are also many markings next to the reindeer/bison cave figures that I think are images next to the reindeer/bison Milky Way figures.

(Update: Added sketches of the markings. On the Milky Way sketch the blue dot is the M6 Butterfly Cluster and the pink dot is the M8 Lagoon Nebula. In the Milky Way the marking in front of the reindeer image is filled with a gold/orange color.)

This theory is about a figure called the Little Sorcerer (or the Petit Sorcier à l’Arc Musical) in the Cave of Les Trois Freres in France. It looks like a little bison-man. There is an image in the Milky Way that I think is the Little Sorcerer Bison-Man in the cave. (Date: about 13,000 BC)

Theory: San Rock Art in the Night Sky/Game Pass Shelter

February 21, 2016/Lynn

This theory is about a South African San painting at Game Pass Shelter. It looks like a thin figure holding the tail of an eland (antelope). There are images in the Milky Way that I think are the San painting figures.

This theory is about a rock art painting at Willcox Shelter in South Africa. It looks like a human/animal figure. There is an image in the Milky Way that I think is this figure.

(This Milky Way human/animal image is part of the Milky Way eland image above.)

Theory: La Pasiega Cave and the Milky Way

July 2, 2016

This theory is about two figures (a horse and a bison) in the Cave of La Pasiega in Spain. There are images in the Milky Way that I think may be the cave figures. (Date: about 14,000 BC, possibly older)
