Designed and built in France (Périgord) with the collaboration of the best prehistorians and the painstaking work of artists, painters and engravers, Lascaux - International Exhibition, offers an identical reconstruction of the decorated walls of the most spectacular sanctuary of Paleolithic art.

Visitors can discover the life-size panels in a cave lit just as it was when the art was made, with oil lamps and torches. Also on display will be objects from Lascaux (arrow heads, spears, the famous pink lamp in red sandstone…), as well as anatomical models of a Cro-Magnon family.

This unique exhibition is the fruit of a marriage between cutting-edge technology and the art of excellence. The replicas exactly reproduce the topography of the rock walls based on a detailed laser scan of Lascaux. The panels are identical to the originals in their characteristics: micro-relief, appearance, texture and final rendering.

The 1000 m² exhibition layout will allow the public to explore the history of the famous cave which for over 70 years has been the focus of the efforts and interest of scientists and artists. Each visitor will be able to form his own personal interpretation of Humanity’s first works.
