Cave paintings are probably the rarest and most enigmatic form of human creativity, as no one knows why they were created and what their authors wanted to express. Some of them were visited and touched by only a handful of modern people. Gua Tewet cave paintings and pictograms, being over 10,000 years old, are one of the oldest in the world. They are also known as the Tree of Life and are thought to be related to early human spiritual activities.
