Women have been Pioneers of Cave Painting

As per a report, men have gathered great achievement in the history of art, but women have always been the pioneers of painting.

American archaeologist revealed that at least three quarters of examples of one of the earliest forms of cave painting have been made by the women.

The most earliest and common forms of prehistoric art are the pictures created by blowing pigment over a hand.

The cave paintings are found all over the world, but the best known examples are in caves in southwest France and northern Spain. Theses caves have been dated about 40,000 years ago.

The cave paintings are long thought to have been made by male hunters to memorize their kills. But, actually they have been the work of the women.

The study revealed will shake the archaeological theory, which is widely believed by most of the world. The theory states that, these ancient artists were mostly created by the men, recording their kills or engaging in some sort of magic ritual.

Dean Snow, Archaeologist of Pennsylvania State University, started his study about ten years back. He started his study after discovering the work of John Manning.

John Manning, a British biologist, discovered many years ago that the men and the women both have finger's of different relative lengths.
