43,900 year old cave painting, a human being in human part: Archaeologists who excavated the limestone cave of Leung Bulu ‘Sipong 4, located on Sulawesi Island, Indonesia, discovered a painting that is approximately 43,900 years old and is a group of abstract creatures that combine the qualities of’ people and Animals Represents: small animals such as wild hunting pigs and spears. This hunting scene is currently the oldest illustrated storytelling record and the oldest figurative art in the world.
“Leung Bulu ‘Sipong 4 presents simple figures with a human predatory body represented in ancient rock art panels, but they are represented with species of birds, reptiles and other creatures such as the head of Sulawesi or other parts of the body, said Dr. Adi Agus Octaviana, researcher at Griffith University.
And researcher at Pusat Penelitian Arkologie National: These therapists are represented in the act of killing or catching six migratory mammals, two Sulawesi wart pigs and four dwarf buffaloes known as Anas. The latter are small but fierce bovids that still inhabit the shrinking forests of the island.
Surprisingly, some figures seem to be using long ropes to capture these dangerous animals. Dr. Octaviana and his colleagues measured the radioactive decay of uranium and other elements within the mineral development formed in cave paintings, providing a minimum age of 35,100 to 43,900 years for the underlying art.
According to scientists, the first rock art of mankind appeared in Europe and consisted of abstract symbols. 35,000 years ago, it was considered that this simple art form had evolved into a more sophisticated artistic culture characterized by high figurative paintings of horses and other animals.
It was also thought that innovative concepts of artistic expression, such as compositions with multiple themes of interaction, and representations of fictional entities such as medical institutions, were very unusual until about 20,000 years ago.
Professor Enemert Ort of Griffith University said: The cave painting by Leenag Bulu Sipong 4 shows that there was no gradual development of the Paleolithic art from simple to complex about 35,000 years ago. All the main components of ultramodern artistic culture existed 44,000 years ago in Sulawesi, including figurative art, visualization and healing.
“The images of practitioners in Leang Bulu ‘Sipong 4 can also represent the earliest evidence of our ability to imagine things that exist in the natural world, a central concept that underlies modern religion,” said Dr. Adam also Broome. Griffith University.
Therianthropes are found in folklore or the fables of almost all modern societies and are considered gods, spirits or ancestral beings in many religions around the world. Sulawesi is now home to the oldest image of this type, even before the ‘lion-man’ of Germany, an idol of a lion-headed human, 40,000 years old, by far the greatest doctor. There was a old drawing .
“The first Indonesians were creating art that may have expressed spiritual thinking about the special bond between humans and animals long before the first art was created in Europe, where it is often believed that modern religious culture Roots can be traced” .
The ‘oldest work of art in the world’ exhibited in the Indonesian cave: The studio’s 4.5-meter painting is believed to be pursued by 44,000-year-old half-human hunters armed with wild animals.
Indonesian cave painting depicting a prehistoric hunting illustration may be the oldest figurative work of art in the world, which according to new research is approximately 44,000 years old, pointing to an advanced artistic culture.
Discovered two years ago on the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia, the 4.5-meter-wide painting features wild animals chased by half-baked hunters who appear on spears and ropes, The study, published in Nature on Wednesday, claims.
Using the dating technique, the team at Griffith University in Australia said they have confirmed that the painting of a limestone cave during the Upper Paleolithic period is at least 43,900 years old.

“This hunting scene is, to our knowledge, currently the oldest illustrated storytelling record and the oldest rhetorical work of art in the world,” the researchers said. The discovery comes after the painting of an animal in a cave on the Indonesian island of Borneo that was at least 40,000 years old.
For many years, rock art originated in Europe, but Indonesian cave paintings have challenged that theory. There are at least 242 caves or shelters with old images in Sulawesi alone, and new sites are discovered annually, the team said. In the last dated scene.
The hunter is depicted in dark red with a human body and the head of animals, birds, and reptiles. The painting, which is in poor condition, suggests that due to folklore, religious myths, and spiritual beliefs, a highly advanced artistic culture existed about 44,000 years ago, the team said.
“(Sight) can be considered not only as the oldest figurative art in the world, but also as the earliest evidence for communicating a narrative in paleolithic art,” the researchers said. “This is remarkable, given that the ability to make up fictional stories may be the last and most important stage in the history of human language development and the development of modern cognitive patterns.”
The findings were published online this week in the journal Nature.
