  • In 1940, another important piece of the puzzle of cave art was discovered in southern France. Four local teenagers and a dog named Robot were out hunting rabbits in the woods when they discovered a hole left by a fallen tree. Looking for rabbits, Robot crawled into the hole and disappeared completely. One of the boys, Marcel Ravidat, went after him into the hole. After making it wider to accommodate his size, Marcel slid down a steep-sided wall and ended up in a large cave. The other boys soon joined him. By match light, they could see an incredible sight: the walls were covered with paintings of huge animals.
