A different way of being able to date these drawings was available so they did some test and came up with the dating. Art is one of the things which make us human IMO..

The other interesting thing one might consider; you have to wonder how much has been lost due to the materials used for the drawings or the conditions/elements the drawing were exposed to over the last several thousand years ?


Archaeologists calculated that a dozen stencils of hands in mulberry red and two detailed drawings of an animal described as a "pig-deer" are between 35,000 to 40,000 years old, based on levels of decay of the element uranium. That puts the art found in Sulawesi, southeast of Borneo, in the same rough time period as drawings found in Spain and a famous cave in France.
