“Cave of Forgotten Dreams”, Werner Herzog’s documentary about the recently discovered Chauvet Cave in France, presents the world’s earliest cave paintings, some 30000 years old.
Amongst the dozens of figurative animals are some where the artist has used multiple exposure image techniques to bring the creatures alive.
Here a multi-legged Bison.
And a Rhino below with series of frames as if part of an animation. Herzog sees in them a proto-cinema.
Interesting to see that in some of the earliest images in the world humans are attempting to move beyond the confines of a fixed representation.
