In the Paleolithic period people used charcoal, grease, or coal for art making. Their brushes were made of animal hairs and the colors they used were mainly red, black, and ochre. They often painted on cave walls and cellings. What they mostly painted were reeindeer, bison, horses, mamoths, and ect. Their purpose for painting was to fovor the hunt, to feel a spiritural conection, and for the reprudction of animals and of man himself.
