This cave painting is c.10,000 BC and is from Val Camonica, Italy.
It appears to depict two beings in protective suits holding strange implements.

Its strange how the arms of the larger one flow into the brain of the smaller one.
When I look at it, it gives me the feeling of the larger one almost becoming part of and controlling the smaller one.
From the quoted piece of the article, regarding "holding strange implements"...I don't see anything that looks like implements being held. So I am a bit confused by that piece. Interesting picture.

Cool image. To me it looks like a really nice depiction of where people think they came from. You've got the stars and the sun and the moon at the bottom, then people walking up with tourtoises, signafying very slow movement from the creation of te stars, right up to the point where you are born. Watched by people, greeted by the snakes, maybe depicting the natural world or something more spiritual.
Personally I love the tourtoises, perfect depiction of an implication of speed, so simple, but so brilliant. Took brains that.
