The magnificent art created deep inside the caves of Western Europe at the end of the Ice Age causes fear and wonder in equal measureWhat to do with these animals and the symbols represented on the walls of caves like the cave of Lascaux, Chauvet and Altamira, to tell us about the nature of the ancestral spiritHow these images of spring, sophisticated and fully formed, apparently from nowhere in human historyThe Spirit in the Grotto puts forward the most plausible explanation still proposed for the origin of the image and artDavid Lewis-Williams skillfully blends a lifetime of the most recent anthropological neurological research ideas to offer a compelling reason for how we became human and, in the process, began to make artIt is a masterpiece of detective work, to shed light on the dark mysteries of our ancestors and the nature of our own consciousness and experience
