"Wherever they were found, what these artworks express is the nature of relationships. The relationship of women to their own bodies, and bodily changes, especially around childbearing. The human relationship to wild animals, at a time when all animals were wild, and we depended on them. Also, there is the relationship to spirit animals and otherworlds. (The grave goods of one boy suggest he was a shaman.) We are still preoccupied with our own bodies; it is the Paleolithic link to animals we miss." Kathleen Jamie • Guardian
