The earliest images
The first visual representations of humans and animals appeared in Europe during the Middle-Upper Paleolithic transition. This transition happened during the same time that neanderthals were replaced by modern homo sapiens. Archeological sites of this period have revealed such artifacts as ivory carvings in geometric and animal forms. Color was also used to complement the sculpted images. Later representations included large-scale bas-reliefs and deep cave paintings which seemed to have decorated the site of everyday living. However, the meaning of these representations are still subject to various interpretations.
