CUEVA DE LAS MAN0S
SOUTH AMERICAN PALEOLITHIC CAVE ART
Santa Cruz province, Argentina [Patagonia]
This archaeological site in the canyon of Río Pinturas contains an exceptional amount of cave art, created between 13,000 and 9,500 years ago.
The name - “cave of the hands” - derives from the countless stenciled outlines of human hands in the cave, but there are also many depictions of animals, as well as hunting scenes, and geometric designs.
The people responsible for the paintings may have been the ancestors of the historic hunter-gatherer communities of Patagonia found by European settlers in the 19th century.
