Lascaux cave complex in southwestern France, discovered in 1940 by four teenagers, contains some of the best-known Upper Paleolithic art estimated to be 17,300 years old. By 1955, carbon dioxide produced by 1,200 visitors per day had visibly damaged the paintings. The cave was closed to the public in 1963. Tourists now visit a replica known as Lascaux II, which opened in 1983 & now draws more than 250,000 people each year. . . . . ღTrish W ~ http://www.pinterest.com/trishw/ . . . .
Summer reading display. Look what a combination of a refrigerator box, newspaper, book packing paper and a bunch of staples and glue can become! The kids all loved it. Soon it will become a haunted cave for Halloween, then I will cover it in white paper for a winter igloo.
