Works made with Paleolithic pigments

The Collection of works made with Paleolithic pigments stems from Andrea Benetti’s important collaboration with the University of Bologna and the University of Ferrara. The latter certified and provided the Bolognese artist with pigments (sediments, earths, ochre and charcoal) from the excavations of Fumane Cave, where primitive man used them 40,000 years ago, to paint five stones, found in the cave, along with the “colors” used. The painted subjects are inspired by prehistoric symbolism and revive after 40,000 years the colors of the illustrious prehistoric “colleague.”
