Ancient carved 'faces' found

Ancient carved 'faces' found
trefwoorden: Italiƫ - eeuwenoud - gezicht - gravure
A keen-eyed archaeologist claims to have found some of the oldest artwork ever - carved faces 200,000 years old.
The human images were found in 2001 by Pietro Gaietto on an expedition through the Borzonasca district of Italy.

If this is genuine, the artist would have been an extinct human species that died out about 150,000 years ago.
