THESE CELEBRITIES ARE not victims of botched plastic surgeries. Rather, they have been disfigured by the golden ratio—the geometric sequence believed to hold the key to beauty in design, art, and nature.
In September 1940, four boys and a dog set out on an adventure in Dordogne, France. Robot the dog ran ahead and stopped at an overgrown depression. When the boys decided to explore the hole, they slid into a deep underground chamber where they discovered the most famous cave paintings in the world- the Lascaux Cave Paintings. In this photo, Robot the dog with two of the four cave's discoverers.
For preservation reasons, the public may only visit a well-executed replica called "Lascaux II". Radiocarbon dating of charcoal and other artifacts found in the cave complex has led most scholars to date the Lascaux paintings to c.15,000 BC, making them some of the oldest paintings in the world.. One of the best ways to explore the Dordogne region is by bike. Find out more about our self-guided cycling trips here: http://www.discoverfrance.com/regions/dordogne-biking-tours.php
