T/AP reconvened on Sunday to make history—quite literally. Joshua Goode led the exercise by discussing possible motivations for ancient man’s image-making practices. Looking at the cave drawings from Lascaux, Stonehenge, and the Venus of Willendorf (among other similar figurines), we wondered if they served some shamanistic, religious, or even scientific purposes. Because these objects are prehistorical (before written records), there are no accompanying documents to tell us what their purposes were—we must theorize.
