The earliest examples of art date to theappearance of modern humans in theUpper Paleolithic era (c.38,000 BCE).Surviving examples of this early art, includingsmall statues, cave paintings, and potteryprovide a tantalizing record of the earliestdays of human existence. Some early art may have beendecorative, but there are good reasons forbelieving that it also fulfilled a ritual purpose,possibly associated with fertility or hunting.
