Lascaux Deer painting on limestone

Lascaux Deer painting on limestone

This is a reproduction of an extinct member of the deer family called Megaloceros (also known as Irish elk, although they were not necessarily found in Ireland and weren't elk). This design is based on a painting in the famous cave of Lascaux in France as I imagine it might have looked, freshly painted 15,000 years ago. Burnt umber pigment paint is blown and hand-painted onto stone, recreating in miniature the art techniques of the first artists. The earth pigment paint I use can handle direct sunlight, and, with care, could last another 15,000 years!

 

Airbrush, hand brush and sgraffito on limestone.
Approx. size 7" x 8.5”

  • About the stone...

    I believe this is a weathered piece of limestone. It is overall a light grey with white crystal shining in the surface.
