Polychrome Hall of the Tito Bustillo Cave

This shows the Polychrome Hall, called in this way due to the use of several colours: reds and blacks (with shades of purple). Also with this variety are the two techniques used: painting and engraving, the latter used both to perform some outlines and to detail and highlight eyes and tails.

The most represented animal is the horse, in this case the Tarpan type, a horse subspecies that existed in this region in a glacial age in which the temperature was between 0 and 5 degrees. The image of some reindeer with fur on their necks also stands out, together with the representation of some signs, in particular a quadrangular engraving in the shape of a grill.

The Polychrome Hall is one of the best examples of overlapping and reiterated and deliberate use of space in European rupestrian art. The same panel includes representations dating back 23,000 years up to its last stages 13,000 years ago.
