What are the functions of prehistoric art

Answers

    This question has no definite answer. Archaeologist haven't found concrete evidence to prove what EXACTLY this art left by our ancestors are for. Simply put, there are several theories for the true functions of prehistoric art and none has been officially proven so far.

    A famous example of cave art are predominantly in Spain and France at Chauvet-Pont d'Arc and Lascaux Grotto.

    These are the two most likely theory of the functions of prehistoric art:

    For Records

    Some scholars theorize that these cave arts are records of a tribes hunt and may also be an early form of census. The meanings of the symbols are yet to be deciphered.

    For Ritualistic Purposes

    Other scholars believed that tribal shamans made this prehistoric art to invoke the spirits of the animals they have encountered. This is to their belief that it will bless their hunters when foraging and hunting for food.

    A large amount of prehistoric art is postulated to have served a sort of mystic purpose. In E. H. Gombrich’s “The Story of Art” the author states that prehistoric art may have served to give early humans power over their food source. Whether that be the horses and cows of the Lascaux cave paintings depicting humans hunting their prey or the prey itself or paintings of plants and tools that served to record information. By depicting the plants they ate or the animals they killed, early humans likely believed that they were exerting power over nature or influencing their upcoming hunts/foraging expeditions.

    In the history of art, prehistoric art is all art produced in preliterate, prehistorical cultures beginning somewhere in very late geological history, and generally continuing until that culture either develops writing or other methods of record-keeping, or makes significant contact with another culture

    characteristics of prehistoric art would vary acccouding to culture, beliefs, and the individual artist. The characteristics would be in the materials used, it being charcoal, ash, pigment, or carvings in stone or wood.

    In the history of art, prehistoric art is all art produced in preliterate, prehistorical cultures beginning somewhere in very late geological history, and generally continuing until that culture either develops writing or other methods of record-keeping, or makes significant contact with another culture that has, and that makes some record of major historical events. At this point ancient art begins, for the older literate cultures. The end-date for what is covered by the term thus varies greatly between different parts of the world.

    The earliest human artifacts showing evidence of workmanship with an artistic purpose are the subject of some debate. It is clear that such workmanship existed by 40,000 years ago in the Upper Paleolithic era, although it is quite possible that it began earlier. In September 2018, scientists reported the discovery of the earliest known drawing by Homo sapiens, which is estimated to be 73,000 years old, much earlier than the 43,000 years old artifacts understood to be the earliest known modern human drawings found previously.

    Engraved shells created by Homo erectus dating as far back as 500,000 years ago have been found, although experts disagree on whether these engravings can be properly classified as ‘art’. From the Upper Palaeolithic through to the Mesolithic, cave paintings and portable art such as figurines and beads predominated, with decorative figured workings also seen on some utilitarian objects. In the Neolithic evidence of early pottery appeared, as did sculpture and the construction of megaliths. Early rock art also first appeared during this period. The advent of metalworking in the Bronze Age brought additional media available for use in making art, an increase in stylistic diversity, and the creation of objects that did not have any obvious function other than art. It also saw the development in some areas of artisans, a class of people specializing in the production of art, as well as early writing systems. By the Iron Age, civilizations with writing had arisen from Ancient Egypt to Ancient China.

    Many indigenous peoples from around the world continued to produce artistic works distinctive to their geographic area and culture, until exploration and commerce brought record-keeping methods to them. Some cultures, notably the Maya civilization, independently developed writing during the time they flourished, which was then later lost. These cultures may be classified as prehistoric, especially if their writing systems have not been deciphered.
