Here’s my theory: There is an image in the Cave of Les Trois Freres in France that looks like a little Bison-Man playing a musical instrument. It is called the Little Sorcerer or the Petit Sorcier à l’Arc Musical. There is an image in the Milky Way that I think is the Little Sorcerer Bison-Man in the cave.

The Bison-Man Cave Image

The Bison-Man is an engraved image in the Cave of Les Trois Freres in southwestern France (Ariege). It is included in a panel with numerous engravings. Its date is about 13,000 BC.

The Bison-Man in the Milky Way Image

Where to look: The Bison-Man in the Milky Way is an image next to the Scutum Star Cloud. It looks like there is a dark line and a line of stars next to the nose of the Milky Way image. The sketch includes a line of stars. (There is also a star closer to the Milky Way image’s body that turns the line of stars into an inward curved line image.)

The Bison-Man cave figure and the Bison-Man Milky Way image are facing in opposite directions. (The Milky Way image’s arm may have been viewed as two arms. Also, there is a line above the Milky Way image’s shoulder that could be the other arm.)

Cave Panel

There are many images in the cave panel with the Bison-Man, including a reindeer and a bison-type figure. I think the reindeer/bison are also Milky Way images. 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. (See Below: Reindeer/Bison Theory)

Additional Information

I also posted a theory about the large Sorcerer of Trois Freres Cave and the Milky Way. The Bison-Man Milky Way image is part of the top of the right antler (next to the Scutum Star Cloud) of the large Sorcerer Milky Way image. (For more information: Sorcerer of Trois Freres Cave Theory)

Additional Thoughts

1) Perhaps there is a link between the way the Bison-Man Milky Way image is viewed and the Bison-Man’s location in the cave.

2) In addition to other possible meanings, could the Bison-Man cave figure have represented a certain time of year when the Milky Way image was in a specific location?

3) In the Trois Freres Cave there is another panel with a Bison-Man type figure. It appears to be looking backward. Perhaps the Bison-Man Milky Way image is also connected with that cave figure.

4) (The Bison-Man Milky Way image appears to be above another Milky Way bison image that is facing and directly behind the Milky Way reindeer/bison pair. Perhaps the Bison-Man Milky Way image and this other Milky Way bison image below it were thought of as one. The Bison-Man Milky Way image looks like it is standing or dancing or jumping, etc. on this other Milky Way bison image – there may be other historical connections to these images.)

5) The Bison-Man Milky Way image may be connected to other figures — for example, the Gabillou Cave Sorcerer, the Chauvet Cave Sorcerer, or the Minotaur.

Here’s my theory: In the Cave of Les Trois Freres in France there is a panel of engravings that includes figures that look like a reindeer and a bison-type image. There are images in the Milky Way that look like the figures in the cave. I think the cave figures are the Milky Way images.

Cave Figures

The reindeer/bison-type figures are engraved images (in a panel with numerous engravings) in the Cave of Les Trois Freres in southwestern France (Ariege). The images date from about 13,000 BC.

The Milky Way Images

Where to look: The M6 Butterfly Cluster is located near the backside of the reindeer (noted with a blue dot on the Milky Way sketch).

There is a line of stars in the reindeer Milky Way image and a line of dots in the reindeer cave image. (And there is a distinctive feature on the bison Milky Way image’s backside that is also on the bison cave figure.)

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.
(Added sketches of 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.)

Cave Panel

There are many images in the cave panel with the reindeer/bison-type figures, including an image that looks like a Bison-Man playing a musical instrument (also called the Little Sorcerer or Petit Sorcier à l’Arc Musical). I think the Bison-Man is also a Milky Way image. (See Above: Bison-Man Theory)

Additional Information

I also posted a theory about the large Sorcerer of Trois Freres Cave and the Milky Way. (Most of the Milky Way Reindeer/Bison/Markings images overlap the Sorcerer Milky Way image/middle and lower body.) (For more information: Sorcerer of Trois Freres Cave Theory)

Additional Thoughts

1) Perhaps there is a link between the way the Milky Way images are viewed and the reindeer/bison’s location in the cave.

2) In addition to other possible meanings, could the figures have represented a certain time of year when the Milky Way images were in a specific location?
