Custom Wallpaper Inspiration: Cave of Forgotten Dreams

I recently saw the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams, and was so taken with the ancient murals that were featured therein. The Chauvet Cave, located in southern France, was discovered in 1994, and is regarded as one of the most important examples of prehistoric art. The drawings are the earliest wall murals known to man, nearly 30,000 years old by some accounts, preserved by the underground conditions, yet hazardous to man as near toxic levels of chemicals are present in the cave; dangerous beauty.

Since these murals are the oldest known to man, I couldn't help bu to envision them printed as wall murals and installed in a contemporary home. The above image is the result of that combination. The mural art effortlessly combines with the cowhide chair and fireplace, alluding to prehistoric materials and life that would've occupied the cave.
