Cave painting of aurochs, wooly rhinos and horses from the Chauvet Cave. The paintings in this cave are between 30,000 and 32,000 years old, and researchers have said that some seem to have a shamanistic purpose to them. The aurochs features in the rune poem about URUZ, and was also mentioned by Caesar in his “Campaigns on Gaul” as a rite of passage for young men.
