It turned out that the oldest painting in the world was not created by people

(ORDO NEWS) — One of the most hotly debated questions in the history of Neanderthal research has been whether they created art.

And it seems that scientists have found confirmation of this.

It is known that at least 65,000 years ago, Neanderthals used red pigments to paint marks on the walls of deep caves in Spain.

In the Ardales Cave near Malaga in southern Spain, they painted concave areas of bright white stalactites.

And in the Maltravieso cave in Extremadura in the west of the country, they painted with their hands. There are other examples as well.

Even later, about 50,000 years ago, Neanderthals developed personal adornments.

They were limited to animal body parts pendants made from carnivore teeth, shells, and bits of bone.
