Stone Age cave paintings have been found in many caves in Europe. Painted between 35,000 and 15,000 years ago by early modern humans we call Cro-Magnons. The paintings are magical, often realistic and depict mainly large wild animals though hand prints are common. The images were painted using charcoal, powdered rocks and minerals mixed with water or fat. We cannot be sure exactly why people made these paintings.

Prehistoric artists employed a wide variety of painting methods, using their fingers first and later pointed sticks, bone, pads of moss wrapped in hide or brushes made of animal hair, feathers or vegetable fibre. Ochre crayons were also used to apply pigment directly onto the surface. They also used spray painting techniques, by spitting out the mixed paint from their mouths and even using reeds or specially hollowed bones - saliva acts as a binder

The site at Tel Motza appears to have been one of the largest settlements in the area at that time notable for 2 story dwellings.
