Transcript of "Prehistoric Arts"

  1. 1. Prehistoric arts<br />
  2. 2. Prehistoric (Stone Age) art<br />is first known period of prehistoric human culture, during which work was done with stone tools. <br />The period began with the earliest human development, about 2 million years ago. <br />It is divided into three periods:<br /> 1. Paleolithic – Old Stone Age<br /> 2. Mesolithic – Middle Stone Age<br /> 3. Neolithic – New Stone Age<br />
  3. 3.
  4. 4. Paleolithic (OLD stone)<br />the longest phase of human history. <br />Its most outstanding feature was the development of the human species-- Homo sapiens. <br />
  5. 5. Paleolithic (OLD stone)<br />Paleolithic peoples were generally <br />nomadic hunters and gatherers <br />who sheltered in caves, <br />used fire, and fashioned stone tools. <br />Their cultures are identified by distinctive stone-tool industries. <br />
  6. 6. Paleolithic (OLD stone)<br />By the Upper Paleolithic there is evidence of communal hunting, <br />constructed shelters, <br />and belief systems centering on magic and the supernatural. <br />Rock carving and paintings reached their peak in the Magdalenian culture of Cro-Magnon man.<br />
  7. 7. Cro-magnon man<br />
  8. 8. Mesolithic (middle Stone)<br />The Mesolithic period, or Middle Stone Age, began at the end of the last glacial era, over 10,000 years ago. <br />Cultures included gradual domestication of plants and animals, <br />formation of settled communities, <br />use of the bow, <br />and development of delicate stone microliths and pottery.<br />
  9. 9. Microlith<br /> Small stone tool<br />
  10. 10. Neolithic (new stone)<br />The time periods and cultural content of the Neolithic period, or New Stone Age, vary with geographic location. <br />The earliest known Neolithic culture developed from the Natufian in Southwestern Asia between 9000 and 7000 BCE. <br />In Southeast Asia a distinct type of Neolithic culture cultivated rice before 2000 BCE. <br />and by 1500 BCE Neolithic cultures existed in Mesoamerica that led to the Aztec and Inca civilizations.<br />
  11. 11. People lived in settled villages, <br />cultivated grains and domesticated animals, <br />developed pottery, spinning, and weaving, <br />and evolved into the urban civilizations of the Bronze Age. <br />New World peoples independently domesticated plants and animals, <br />Neolithic (new stone)<br />
