Les signes et leurs supports pariétaux. : Analyse comparée des rapports entre les représentations abstraites et les reliefs naturels dans les grottes ornées du Paléolithique supérieur au sein de l’espace franco-cantabrique

Abstract : Among the representations distributed in the decorated caves in Europe during Paleolithic superior, signs have a dominating place. When considering the cave as regards the realization of parietal devices, it becomes clear that the representations are not laid out randomly on the walls. Geometrical images have been the subject of a detailed attention in their realization and their distribution on the walls of the caves. Macroreliefs (pillars, niches…) and microreliefs (cracks, hollow…) have been diversely used by the artists in the realization of the signs. These modes of using walls, concerning the surface or the framing of the signs, are the object of our research, through an analysis of 692 signs, distributed in 26 caves within franco-cantabric space, and of thein technical and morphological features, of their location in the caves and the various themes they associate. The diversity observed in the natural supports and the way they have been used testifies to the adaptation of men to an underground space and to the choices carried out in the realization and location of the signs on the walls.
