В детстве меня удивляло, что в пещерной живописи очень детально изображались животные и очень условно - люди. Нам это объясняли ритуальными причинами. Или просто пещерные художники были анималистами, а не портретистами?
When I was a kid, I was amazed that prehistoric cave drawings depicted animals in great detail and people in a very conventional way. It was explained to us by ritual reasons. But I think the point is that cave painters were animalists, not portraitists.

@Smilepictor they told stories. You don't tell stories painting portraits. And let's be honest. Animals are so much more interesting than people.
