Niaux

18 Jan 2018

At www.q-mag.org/the-salon-noir-the-cave-of-niaux.html ... the cave of Niaux was never used as a dwelling but it has a lot of cave paintings. Anne Marie provides the history leading up to a proper investigation of the cave and its heritage. The mountain itself is riddled and hollowed out by a network of caves but in one large gallery there are over 10 figures and representations, 55 of which are bovine and 29 equine. The vast cavity, 45m high and shaped like a nave, has exceptional accoustic qualities. The least murmur or noise is repeated and amplified as an echo.
