Cow Art Thou?




Look at the bottom left---with horns-----
 
"It depicts ... a cow. Despite the humble subject matter, the painting is extraordinary because it's at least 40,000 years old. That makes it thousands of years older than the oldest such paintings in Europe.
The Indonesia painting is one of thousands of drawings and stencils in a warren of limestone caves tucked into remote mountains at the far eastern edge of the island of Borneo, a part of Indonesia called Kalimantan. Archaeologists went there in the 1990s looking for cave art."

From an NPR story--full story is HERE!

But excuse my skepticism, but it's a bit like looking at cloud formations and seeing---whatever!
