We all take cavemen drawings on cave walls for granted. But have we all seemed to somehow neglect to notice that they never drew the men with any beards. I could be wrong but do not think so.

I have a theory that they were perhaps the survivors from the destroyed Atlantis. So maybe they had the technology / knowlegde to shave.

If they were evolving primates is it possible that they had a strong sense of self identity? Doubtful.

Or were these beings hybrids?

Also does anyone have any information on how the egyptians shaved, as their carvings depict neat and tidy goatees.

Thx.

maybe they didn't think it was that important. or maybe they found it too hard to draw. either way, i don't see what the big scandal about it is  huh.gif

No beards?  They didn't have faces either, or hair.  Drawing accurately, like any other artform, took a long time to evolve beyond its primitive roots.

It was their ART...... they can draw themselves anyway they like, but maybe they just didn`t draw them because their pictures were never super detailed and putting on a beard wouldn`t be right thumbsup.gif  their way of drawing.lol..............who knows????

Ya know, a few days ago I found a better explaination(sp?) for Angelfish than "Cus it sounds cool".
But than I realized there was no one around to hear it, and I got really depressed.
I hope you all intend to make me feel better.

I think you are making a serious and fundamental point that nobody has noticed or considered before.

if you look on the bottom right you can see figures, they are usually void of detail because of the method they used at the time, but they dont have beards...but do you expect them to have beards?

Why wouldn't they shave? They were anatomically almost identical to us and a newly knapped flint is comparable to a razor-blade in cutting ability. I think you're assuming that they wouldn't have thought how to shave because they were in some way "thick", but then someone had to invent it.

cave paintings were made to tell storys correct? i don't think beards were really an important element and it was just like let's do this quick and simple so that we can remember maybe? and also they wern't that advanced art detail probally wasn't a big deal but then again who knows...
