La Serreta Rock Art

This image is a summary of more than 50 images-figures that can be found on the walls of La Serreta cave. Paintings from Neolithic (17000 to 15000 bC)
The highlight is the image you can see on top-right. Could it be the first bullfighter in history? Archaeologists think that it could be a god, a divinity, because it is the only human form that it has like a hat, and the lines around it, it is like a radiance. In the place that it is this "toreador", bottom of it, there are 3 figures as worshiping, foming a triangle.
On bottom-right, it is a similar divinity, although more schematic.
These cave paintings are World Heritage by UNESCO since 1998.

It's fascinating, seeing them, wondering what these distant ancestors' world view was, their thoughts, their expressions.
