Chauvet Cave Replica
A huge replica of the prehistoric Chauvet Cave in southwest France, which contains hundreds of works of art radiocarbon dated to be more than 35,000 years old, has finally opened. Hi-tech scans, 3D-modelling and digital images of the original cave were used to create the copy, which took eight years to build and cost 55m euro thingies. The stalagmites and stalactites were remade in resin (CLICK).
