Beautiful paintings and drawings of our early ancestors
This drawing was found in the cave of Altamira. It is indeed clear that someone was busy studying motion, and he or she even put down the results of his or her examination, more than 10.000 years prior to the famous researches and photographer Mybridge and the development of film.
