The Origin of Arts

There is nothing like a blank stone surface to inspire a widely shared urge to make art.
The oldest cave painting known until now is a 40,800-year-old red disk from El Castillo, in northern Spain.


It was generally believed that cave paintings were first made in Europe, but, recently cave paintings found in Indonesia are among the oldest cave paintings found, dating about 39,000 years ago.
