Chauvet Cave

Look at these expertly painted horses heads, including a prehistoric French rhinoceros, painted some 30,000 years ago on a wall of the Chauvet Cave in Ardeche, southern France. Back in 2007 the French applied to UNESCO to have the Pont d'Arc classified as a world heritage site. After five years, they are still waiting! "La Grotte" as UNESCO calls it (grotto) has made UNESCO's "tentative list", but still there is no firm decision (CLICK).
