This is a review for BuckArt's Chauvet Lions. The item is even more beautiful than it appeared in the photos. I've added it to my collection of several pieces of art from the same artist. The art and the stone play off each other perfectly. Fast shipping, well packaged, beautifully wrapped. You can't go wrong with this seller! Photo includes part of a different item from same artist.

The artwork is even more beautiful in person. The colors and details on the stone truly suit the painting. This was created with intense passion and feels so true to history. It's a remarkable piece to be enjoyed by many generations, especially those of us in love with the Lascaux Cave. Thank you, Carolyn! You're extraordinary!

A rare beauty that will make a unique gift. This bear is quite endearing. The stone has a nice substantial weight, too. Excellent communication via email. Packed with meticulous care and shipped quickly. Thank you also for the delightful miniature cards!

I have long been amazed at the creativity of the first humans in Europe. I have 2 pieces from BuckArt. They are original art and the closest thing to the real thing you can hang on a wall. I would have more but I need more walls.

This exquisite stone painting takes you closer to the Lascaux cave art than ever. Beautiful and haunting. Finally a true representation that is not just another post card or photo.
Travelling back in time to bring the past back alive and kicking.
Thirty-four years ago, I was working part-time at the U.C. Berkeley Paleontology Museum while studying Fine Art. The two became linked in my imagination. Later, after seeing some of the caves in France I wanted to bring home a souvenir that captured the magic and primitive feel of the caves, but found only mass produced kitsch. I thought I could do better, so I have been researching, experimenting and creating cave art ever since.
I spend hours at the stone yard, looking at the colors and textures of stone, looking for the forms of animals or people that lie in them. Each expedition yields about 100 pounds of interesting rocks. I shape the rock with a hammer and chisel, some of the more brittle stones shattering into sharp, unusable bits. Out of 100 lbs. of rock, I usually get about 20 lbs. of usable pieces. Once I’ve roughly shaped a stone, I rub it with another stone to smooth the surface and edges, brighten the colors, open the pores and give the stone a weathered ancient feel. I use the same painting techniques that paleolithic artists used, the main difference being I use an airbrush to blow light fast paint onto stone, rather than spitting pigment mixed with cave water out of my mouth (I’d like to live longer than they did!) and my paintings are smaller than the originals for portability. I use the same pigments, and sgraffito scraping techniques and am constantly exploring paleo art imagery and symbols, trying to recreate non-literate communication, and beauty, on stone.

Frequently asked questions
Can a hanging stone painting also be put on display on a plate stand?
Yes. Flat bottomed stones do especially well on tabletop stands. Irregular stones, too, if they aren't too pointy. I originally started showing my stone paintings in wooden plate stands.
These stones may be safely dusted with a duster or soft cloth. The paint I use is light fast and super-fine, so it soaks in to the surface of the stone, but may be scraped off by something hard. The stone may be wiped off with a damp cloth if it gets dirty, but take care around the painted areas. With care, your painting should last at least 20,000 years!
