Additional Content

The cave is approximately 240m long. Its engravings begin 70m from the entrance. Thematically the rock art of Les Combarelles I is similar to the spectrum of themes of other caves around Les Eyzies-de-Tayac: horses, bison, mammoths, capricorns and deer exist. In addition to these complex symbols, bears and anthropomorphic figures were depicted. Style II (15.000-11.500 BP)
