Anyway I hope you realise that the cave artists painted these long before mirrors ... And even longer before cameras, so the whole idea of a mirror image being developed from a photograph to denote any meaning I hope you have the sense to see is so terribly terribly terribly flawed. Interesting nonetheless. I think Chauvet got his idea one day by simply folding the back cover of a Mad Magazine.
Im so terribly terribly terribly sorry to have to be the one to break the news to you Rogue.
Please dont stop having such a wonderful wonderful day.
I would think that any hominid would have recognized themselves in the reflection in water,or the mirror image of the shoreline,so it could be applied in an artistic sense.I am only making a point and not adding support for the OP's theory.

Not only that, but if the cave art is really 30 000 years old, well, the Romans didnt even exist then so that makes it impossible to resemble anything Roman

One thing to take notice about these cave drawings is that so-called dumbass cavemen didn't draw these, it takes much skill in art along with a keen eye to take notice of details, especially with animals, despite what connections the OP is making out of all of this. The artists were highly intelligent and professional.
...and it's true, Seeder, the Chauvet cave paintings are really thirty thousand years old or more, according to the latest raidocarbon dating tests.
As an update to this particular image, it has been confirmed by Catherine Acaholonu (United Nations member forum for art and culture, Special Adviser on Arts and Culture to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria) as being the birth of the first Egyptian God.. http://chauvetdreams...g-the-evidence/

I find cave art, tens of thousands of years old, facinating enough. I don't need any fanciful interpretations to appreciate it for what it is.
"An atheist, like a Christian, holds that we can know whether or not there is a God. The Christian holds that we can know there is a God; the atheist, that we can know there is not. The Agnostic suspends judgment, saying that there are not sufficient grounds either for affirmation or for denial."
