The 100,000-year-old paint pot: Man's oldest art studio found in cave

Paint pots used by humans more than 100,000 years ago have been discovered in South Africa.

Archaeologists excavating the Blombos Cave have stumbled upon a hoard of art materials which include everything an ancient artist might have required to be creative.

Red and yellow pigments, shell containers and grinding cobbles and bone spatulas - to mix up a paste - were all present in the discovery that, researchers say, is proof that our early ancestors' were more modern than once thought.

Seems as if the people at the time were practicing abstract and symbolic art forms.  80,000 years ago?  That's pretty sophisticated for prehistoric man.
