New Battle for the Dating of Chauvet Cave

  • from Past Horizons

"In 1994, the discovery of the wonders contained within Chauvet cave at Vallon-Pont-d’Arc (France) formed a crucial part of our understanding of Palaeolithic art as a whole. At the time the discovery became a media sensation and then more recently returned to the limelight with the release of Werner Herzog’s film Cave of Forgotten Dreams.

The cave, extends horizontally for nearly 500 metres and is located at the entrance to the Ardèche gorges between the Cevennes and Rhone valleys. Over 425 groups of paintings have been documented and include numerous realistic renditions of animals (reindeer, horses, aurochs, rhinoceros, bison, lions, cave bears among others), human hand prints and abstract dots. The images in the front hall are primarily red, created with liberal applications of red ochre, while the back hall images are mainly black, drawn with charcoal.

The black drawings are grouped into two main phases; a paste of ground charcoal in water for the more recent and a dry charcoal stick for the earlier. However, the early age assigned to some of the black images have been called into question by researchers Jean Combiera and Guy Jouve, who have carried out a comparison with other cave art from the same period along with an examination of the original AMS radiocarbon dates.

No isolated moment of artistic genius

Combiera and Jouve argue that the site must be examined in its natural, cultural and thematic framework within a wider region, believing that the images do not represent an isolated moment of artistic genius from the Aurignacian period. By examining and comparing the red and black painted figures, as well as the engraved images, to the later Gravettian and Solutrean period examples, they feel there is a marked stylistic similarity, including the way that both mammoth and horse are portrayed” (read more).

***A battle no less!

I do not have a dream role. You see, I have worked for most of my life with an art form where lots and lots of the audience come to boo. Because they believe that opera is a tradition rather than an art form. My dream is to see real joy in opera. My dream is to see opera opening up to other art forms. My dream is to bring real opera a tiny bit closer to the non traditional opera audience. After all, Opera came to be as a kind of revolution against the all ruling power of the church but now opera is conservative to the very bone. I dream of that little revolution again !
