Chauvet cave : the art of earliest times by Jean Clottes( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The discovery of the Chauvet Cave in France's Ardeche Valley in December 1994 by speleologists Jean-Marie Chauvet, Eliette Brunel, and Christian Hillaire was a remarkable event. The incredible age of the cave paintings, which dated back 35,000 years, and their exceptionally high quality were the source of both astonishment and admiration. No other major site exists that is as close in age to the arrival of modern humans in Europe." "Several years ago, a team of specialists from many different disciplines, led by Jean Clottes, began the first detailed scientific study of the cave. The cave has slowly revealed many of the secrets of its origins: its dating, the traces left by animals and humans, the artistic techniques that were used, and the themes of the paintings and engravings." "All of these discoveries are published together here for the first time, accompanied by hundreds of color illustrations that allow the public to share not only this new knowledge but also the thrill and fascination of looking into the deep time of an ancient world."--Jacket
The shamans of prehistory : trance and magic in the painted caves by Jean Clottes( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The universality of shamanistic power and practice among today's hunter-gatherers - along with the similarity of rock art found in varied sites around the world - has led Jean Clottes and David Lewis-Williams to suggest in this new book that the great art of paleolithic caves can be best understood through the lens of shamanism. Indeed, this is not a monograph on a particular site, but a general discussion of the art of painted caves and their shamanistic meaning. Through the authors' revealing words and the abundant full-color illustrations, we follow shamans into their trance states, and we watch as they carefully paint and engrave on rock surfaces the shapes of animals whose power they seek. As we learn how drawings and rituals were likely modes of shamanistic contact, we understand best the actions, accomplishments, and traces left behind by prehistoric shamans
The cave beneath the sea : Paleolithic images at Cosquer by Jean Clottes( Book )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1991, a professional diver named Henri Cosquer discovered a wealth of prehistoric art in a cave near Marseilles, France. The opening to the cave, once several miles inland from the Mediterranean, became submerged when the sea began to rise at the end of the last ice age, about 12,000 years ago. Since that time, no human had entered this deep cavern or seen the paintings and engravings of animals, human hands, and signs that cover the walls and ceilings until Cosquer swam cautiously up the flooded entrance passage. News of Cosquer's extraordinary find flashed around the world. The French Ministry of Culture immediately sent two eminent archaeologists, Jean Clottes and Jean Courtin, to study the cave. Assisted by teams of specialists, they carried out two diving missions to the site, in 1991 and 1992. This book describes what they found and provides the first complete photographic documentation of this incredible site, one of the major decorated caves of Europe

"The discovery of the Chauvet Cave in December 1994 by speleologists Jean-Marie Chauvet, Eliette Brunel and Christian Hillaire was a remarkable event. The incredible age of the paintings, which dated back 35,000 years, and their exceptionally high quality were the source of both astonishment and admiration, and the images of mammoths, rhinoceroses, lions, bears, horses and bison have since been seen all around the world." "Several years ago, a team of specialists from many different disciplines, led by Jean Clottes, began the first detailed scientific study of the cave. This collaborative project has been amazingly fruitful and the cave has slowly revealed many of the secrets of its origins: its dating, the traces left by animals and humans, the artistic techniques that were used, and the themes of the paintings and engravings. New light has also been cast on this unique art by art historians and ethnologists." "All of these discoveries are published together here for the first time, accompanied by hundreds of colour illustrations, allowing the public to share not only this new knowledge but also the thrill and fascination of looking back into an ancient world, so many thousands of years old."--BOOK JACKET
