Small Lascaux Reindeer painting on gold sandstone

Small Lascaux Reindeer painting on gold sandstone

This is a reproduction of a Lascaux reindeer as I imagine it might have looked, freshly painted 15,000 years ago. Raw umber paint is blown onto the stone. In some places I use my hand as a mask just as cave artists did, recreating in miniature the art techniques of the first artists. Reindeer were among the most common food of ice age people (according to their garbage dumps), yet are not frequently seen in existing cave art.

  • About the stone...

    This stone is called gold sandstone. The colors are subtle diagonal stripes of bronze, gold and silver. There is a light silver mica shimmer overall. I like how the shape works with the reindeer.
