  1. Well, look.�

    I believe that the moment the monkey took up the stick and became a man, his thinking began to improve along with the improvement of tools. The ancestor of modern man developed an interest in the world around him and its inhabitants, and a range of feelings emerged. At some point, there was a need for creativity and self-expression, probably even the makings of self-awareness. An unknown world opened up before a person, leaving in his memory the most vivid impressions, which he reflected in his rock paintings. Funny as it may seem, young children do the same thing: strange and bizarre children's drawings are bright moments or images in a person's life that they want to capture. I have some thoughts about the fact that with the help of rock art, people tried to understand the world around them through images, interpreting them in their own way. Feeling respect for the strongest, the man portrayed strong animals: bulls, mammoths and tigers, while not forgetting to honor his fellow tribesmen who participated in the hunt. To summarize.

    Creativity is the product of a person's mental activity, the emergence and development of imaginative thinking and the emergence of the need for self-expression. Creativity appeared at the moment when the monkey had consciousness.

  2. I would not say that primitive man wanted to express himself through rock paintings))
    Everything can be linked, as an image of the game, to the time when the primitive communal system was just being built. Let's assume all of the above, and summarize by saying that in the very development of primitive man wanted to improve his erudition as well. In order for the hunt to be successful, he had to study the animals themselves, touch them, it's like a kind of ritual of rock images. In primitive man, the need for creativity is simply impossible at such stages of development, because if there was a need for self-expression, then there would be a need for self-realization.Most likely, it was a desire, unconsciously driven by the instinct of survival, which initially had a certain game in itself. But, arguably, art is not an instinctive phenomenon.

  3. Art appeared around the time religion appeared. What was its purpose for the ancient people? The life of an ancient man depended on whether his pack would get food or not, and some bison was the salvation of people) They clearly understood that they were dependent on animals, and in the cave paintings of animals, you can see two points: animal worship+ pack training before hunting. Ancient people developed' strategies ' for hunting, practiced accuracy (they could throw spears at the image), and, of course, the best, thoughtful, trained hunters were more likely to survive. Art has many functions, but for the ancient people it was paramount to survive, and art helped them in this.
