Cave paintings are a mystery by themselves. They are interesting, there’s no doubt about it. And they can hide so many meanings. Some people state that they were a way to transmit information, while others believe they had a religious or ceremonial purpose. And then, what about the people who painted them? Some theories state that prehistoric men painted animals to “catch” their spirit in order to hunt it more easily. Others believe that the paintings represent stories, recordings of daily life experiences. Whatever the reason, cave paintings and the cultures behind them remain a mystery.
Now that you have a broader knowledge of the subject, for your third task we would like you to think about or invent an ancient wizarding culture or civilization, and write or draw a story from your wizarding culture. How does the execution differ or match that of a Muggle culture? For example, do the cave paintings use different materials and methods, do the oral stories involve magic?
