La Cueva de las Manos (Cave of the Hands) - Patagonia, Argentina

This Palaeolithic art gallery dates back 10,000 years and lies in the Pinturas River valley of Argentina’s Patagonia. The beautiful paintings are from varying time periods, by different peoples. However, the fascinating side of this work is a series of handprints, carefully stencilled on the cave’s walls, believed to have been made in around 5,000 BC and are mostly of left hands, indicating the artists held their spraying pipes in their right hands to create the colourful silhouettes.
