"UNESCO World Heritage Altamira belongs to the Franco-Cantabrian belt of decorated caves, which extends from southwest France to northeast Spain. The cave itself had been found by a huntsman in 1868, but it was only eleven years later that a five-year-old girl noticed the paintings. Her father, Marcelino de Sautola, was the first to excavate the site and publish his findings. His claim that the paintings were Paleolithic was greeted with some skepticism. Some French archeologists even suggested that they were forgeries. Sautuola's theories were eventually vindicated after his death. The extraordinary paintings are mainly of animals. The finest ones depict bison, but deer, boars, and horses also appear. The artists used just three color pigments--ocher, red, and black--but managed to create remarkably realistic images, particularly in the texture of the manes and fur. The painters also used the uneven surface of the walls to give the animals a sense of volume. In common with the caves at Lascaux and elsewhere, conservation has been a major and ongoing headache. The cave was closed for a time in 1977 and then reopened five years later on a very limited basis (there is a three-year waiting list to view the paintings). Instead, visitors are encouraged to visit one of the replicas of the cave. The first of these was produced by the Deutsches Museum in Munich (1962), but there is another version in Madrid (1964), and a more elaborate one near Altamira itself (2001)."
