In this book, the author presents geometric signs that appear on the oldest figurative art worldwide. The objects were found in the caves of the Swabian Jura and are about 40,000 years old. A presentation of the material, the discussion of symbol theory and the function of abstract motifs in early human societies, as well as an illustrated catalog give a comprehensive insight into an important stage of human cultural development.
