The year is 35 000 years BC, this is where we left our first trace. More than 400 paintings were found in this cave, Chauvet Pont d’Arc, (also called La Grotte Chauvet) made by the First humans. Who were they? Why did they choose this place as a sanctuary? What was their relationship with nature? With the spiritual world? The Dawn of Art is a trip to the very heart of our origins, where bears were gods. Where men invented their first creative gesture. Narrated by Daisy Ridley and Cécile de France, “The Dawn of Art” is a Virtual Reality experience including both an immersive film and a virtual visit of the Chauvet cave which contains some of the best-preserved figurative cave paintings in the world.
