Cave art is one of the earliest signs of habitation of an area and provides a glimpse into the history of the people. Some of the most famous of these cave arts can be found in France, though the ones found in Argentina should not be easily dismissed. Located minutes from El Calafate, the Walichu Caves holds a wonderful treasure; the cave drawings of the Tehuelche People. Over 4,000 years ago during the Paleolithic Age, these drawings of people, animals, and maps were created to aid those hunting or traveling the land. While most of these drawings have survived the rigors of time, some of them has needed restorative applications in order to insure there presence for the future. The same ancient techniques that were used to first create these drawings were implemented in the restoration process.
The Walichu Caves is a wonderful experience especially for those with an interest in the start of man kind. The drawings here represent skilled hands and creative minds and are commonly thought to represent the first attempts of art.
