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)

The Trois Freres Cave Reindeer and Bison in the Milky Way Theory

March 21, 2016/Lynn

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.

Theory: African Rock Art in the Milky Way/Willcox Shelter

April 28, 2016/Lynn

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.

The Trois Freres Cave Bison-Man in the Milky Way Theory

February 4, 2016/Lynn

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.

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)
