Absolutely stunning.! I can see that the gifted artist,used a 4 point perspective, diverging into the far background,giving a feeling of infinity and realism. A very impotent work.,,,,(lol)

No way...Mick Jagger was only one year old 28,000 years ago so he probably lacked the arm strength to paint on rocks.

why does an artist always have to die for their art to become famous?
