French experts Jacques Brunet and Phillipe Mallorin will help preserve cave drawings in Bashkiria
They will arrive in Ufa on Monday to work in the world famous cave Shulgan-Tash (Kapova), the Bashkir Culture and National Policy Ministry told. The French and Russian experts will examine the unique cave drawings and analyze Russia's proposals on its preservation. The Frenchmen are to complete their work in the cave on August 14. At the same time a film crew from Munich will be making a film about the origin of men on the Earth. One of its episodes is dedicated to the mystery of the Kapova cave. The Kapova cave, or Shulgan Tash, one of the largest caves in the Southern Urals, was formed in limestone and dolomite rocks of the Devonian Period. Its corridors and grottos are located at two levels. Their total length is over 2,000 kilometers. Paleolithic drawings were discovered here in 1959. There are images of mammoths, horses and rhinos on the second level at the depth of 300 meters from the entrance. Their sized differs from 44 to 112 centimeters. The images are red painted silhouettes or rough contours. The pictures of mammoths and rhinos date the drawings back to the Paleolithic Age. There are red geometric drawings of ladders, cabins, triangles, diagonal lines, and anthropomorphic in the remote halls of the first level. They date back to the Paleolithic Age, as well. Similar drawings can be found on the second level. However, they are fading and experts are afraid that they can totally disappear
