I am currently studying anthropology, and this book contains images of prehistoric cave/rock art. It entertains a connection between artistic expression and its relation to ceremonial practices during ancient times. Thus far, it has been most interesting.

It was the first time I'd heard of the use of uneven cave wall surfaces being turned into an artistic opportunity, overlain images would use depressions and bulges to enhance depictions of sloping backs, necks and humps.

An analysis of the origins of the prehistoric cave paintings and sculptures of Europe examines the link between art, creativity, religion and ritual, and group solidarity

Love Me
The Creative Explosion An Inquiry into the Origins of Art and ReligionWas amazed by incisiveness and depth of this book when
it came out, ca 1980. The function of the prehistoric symbiology, especially for scaring folks into behaving in useful, often necessary
ways (if the species is to survive) is very useful in understanding the
then Cold War, now War on Terror, War on Crime, War on Drugs, etc. The
phrase, "and the priests came to believe the lies," regarding the Dordogne
cave paintings has echoes over the decades, right down to Dawkins, Diamond, Harris, E.O. Wilson, and David Livingstone Smith ("Why We Lie"). Pfeiffer's book is a gem.

Just had to write a review about this excellent book which I bought in a bargain book shop for a quid, way back in 1987. I had been fascinated by cave art as a child in the seventies, and in the eighties books on it were still very scarce. However, 'The Creative Explosion' is still my favourite, not surpassed in all these years, and it was the very first to take me to a deeper understanding of how cave art could have influenced, reflected the psyche of our ancient ancestors. It was the first time I'd heard of the use of uneven cave wall surfaces being turned into an artistic opportunity, overlain images would use depressions and bulges to enhance depictions of sloping backs, necks and humps. This fact amazed me at both the cleverness of our 'primitive' ancestors and the potential for imagination to turn seeming disadvantage to advantage, a philosophy to life I've tried to hold tight too. An incredibly clever book that legitimately extrapolated from cave art into how humans learn and express themselves in subsequent history and all cultures. This book is a gem, please read it!

There are many books about prehistoric art but for some reason this excellent well written and very enjoyable book is not linked to them at Amazon. I read this book years ago on loan from a library after it was already out of print. After reading it I could not rest until I owned a copy, it was that good. The author pioneered the idea that cave art had a religious function, an idea now routinely passed around by scholars (often as their own). I found the author narrative hard to put down, unlike some more recent authors on the subject whose work is hard and often painful to pick up. If one wanted to read only one book about prehistoric art this should be the one.

BTW, for some reason Amazon put two pictures representing the cover of the book. The cover without the picture of the Pope and with the picture of the cave painting is the right cover.
