Some of the paintings are 20 feet high, and many of them show that the articles had remarkable skill.Caves at Altamira also contain many paintings. In an area that extends from southwest France to northern Spain there are a great many caverns that have ancient wall paintings and also some sculptures. The earliest were found in 1879, but no one accepted them as prehistoric paintings until intense studies were made of some of the more recent discoveries.
