Birth of primitive art 17: It might tell us something.


The color of earth people's skin 

< The color of earth people’s skin >

 

This series of “Birth of primitive art ” is finished in this time.

We look at things that people of 30000 years ago left and have more than one interpretation today.

I feel that the secret of human-beings evolution and a still more important suggestion are hidden in them.

 

今回で、「原初美術の誕生」の連載を終えます。

数万年前の人々が残し、解釈が定まっていない物を見ます。

それらには、人類進化の秘密、さらに重要な示唆が隠されているような気がする。

 

making negative hand shape

< Left fig.: making negative hand shape. Right fig.: the hand shape >

 

These hand shapes were painted 20,000 years ago in a cave, France.

Many kind of pattern were painted bending finger as indicated.

These are found all over the world at 15% of ruins in 13000~35000 years ago.

It may show the number.

There are peoples who count number of heads until 20 using the finger of his hand within the reindeer nomad in Siberia.

 

 

この手形はフランスの洞窟に2万年前描かれたものです。

図のように指を曲げて、幾通りもの指が欠けたパターンを描いたようです。

世界中で、35000~13000年前の遺跡の15%で見つかっています。

これは数字を示しているらしい。

シベリアのトナカイ遊牧民には、手の指を使い20まで頭数を数える人々がいる。

 

Venus of Laussel

< partial diagrammatic view, Venus of Laussel, France, 25000 years ago >

 

This Venus has a horn of the bison on which the lines of 13 was engraved.

The lines probably show a number of the moons for one year, and some days.

 

このビーナスは13の線が刻まれたバイソンの角を持っている。

この刻線は1年間の月数か何か日数を示しているらしい。

Many symbols that have segregated and been continuing probably show phases of the moon.

 

描き分けられた図形が連続しており、月の満ち欠けを示していると考えられる。

 

The symbols of rock arts of the prehistoric age

< The symbols of rock arts of the prehistoric age、by Bradshaw Foundation >

 

The symbols were drawn repeatedly in 146 caves in France.

Surprisingly, the same as the symbols had appeared all over the world.

The symbols were drawn 13000~35000 years ago.

Within the 26 symbols, there are 15 symbols that are found at 15% or more of all the ruins.

The zig-zag sign at the right lower was found in Australia, the north-south United States, India, and inside and Southern Africa.

The symbols were drawn 13000~20000 years ago.

 

 

この記号はフランスの洞窟壁画(146箇所)に頻繁に描かれていたものです。

驚くことに世界中にこれと同じ記号が出現しているのです。

この記号群は35000~13000年前に描かれたものです。

この26個の記号中、全遺跡の15%以上で見つかったものは15個あります。

右下のジグザグ記号はオーストラリア、南北アメリカ、インド、中・南部アフリカで見つかっています。

それが描かれた時期は20000~13000年前の期間です。

 

What would these mean?

 

They had already treated the number.

With that、The number of game animal was counted, the calendar was recorded and the period like childbirth was possibly measured.

They have recognized surrounding nature abstractly, and were thinking of it and expressing it.

 

Their capability to express fine arts and the symbols suddenly did not appeared in glacial epoch of Europe.

I think that people in those days were unable to tell the symbols to all each continent.

Those days, all people that had diffused on the earth must have had the same intelligence and feeling.

 

Because human beings had been adapted to the climate for the past 10,000 years at most, the color of skin changed, and the race was birthed.

Europe of the glacial epoch enabled the settlement of group, and explosion of fine arts was induced, and disappeared by warming.

That’s just about it.

 

Thank you for reading this series until the last.

 

 

これらは何を意味するのでしょうか?

 

彼らは既に数字を扱っていたのです。

それにより狩猟動物の頭数を数え、暦を記録し、出産のような時期を計っていたのかもしれません。

自然を抽象的に認識し、思考し、表現していたのです。

 

美術や記号を表現する能力はヨーロッパの氷河期に突如として出現したのではないのです。

当時の人々が、各大陸の隅々まで記号を伝えるのは不可能です。

地球上に展開していた当時の人々は、すべて同じ知能と感情を持っていたのです。

 

高々ここ1万年間の気候に順応したことにより、肌の色が変わり、人種が生まれたのです。

     氷河期のヨーロッパが集団定住を可能にし、美術の爆発を生み、そして温暖化共に消え去った。

それだけのことなのです。

 

連載を最後までお読みいただきありがとうございました。

  1. There is a fictional book series that start with The Clan of the Cave Bear. In the later books the wise women must reverse their sleeping to keep track of the moon, like the stone carving you have in this post. I was wondering in my imagination what it could have looked like and you provided just the right image.

    Thank you for sharing your travels, education and opinions.
