It's fun to be guided into the caves by someone with so much knowledge and enthusiasm. Thanks to Guillaume's presentation I got a deeper understanding of the art itself, along with the vast span of prehistory and the varying ways we try to understand it.
I so appreciated the lecture by Dr. Durand. I learned so very much from him and also thought his presentation was filled with enthusiasm and most interesting. I should have heard this lecture before going to visit these caves that I loved. I also appreciated Dr Durand's emphasis on the creative part of the artwork.
Dr. Durand takes you on a world-wide tour of more caves and their paintings than you knew existed. He analyzes a large number of paintings and discusses the various theories of why they were painted. Going back 40,000 years in time is a fascinating experience.
Dr. Durand's talk was most informative. He shared some beautiful photos of cave paintings and his enthusiasm was contagious.
I thoroughly enjoyed this lecture. Dr. Durand was well prepared, had magnificent visuals and gave a fascinating lecture.
