Più antico esempio di arte simbolica (Homo Sapiens):

An abstract drawing from the 73,000-year-old levels at Blombos Cave, South Africa – Nature

Abstract and depictive representations produced by drawing-known from Europe, Africa and Southeast Asia after 40,000 years ago-are a prime indicator of modern cognition and behaviour1. Here we report a cross-hatched pattern drawn with an ochre crayon on a ground silcrete flake recovered from approximately 73,000-year-old Middle Stone Age levels at Blombos Cave, South Africa.

Più antico esempio di arte simbolica (Homo Erectus):

Homo erectus made world’s oldest doodle 500,000 years ago – Nature
