Interesting, though it is difficult to believe everything you read!

"Prehistoric artists who carved giant rock canvas in Italian Alps were "precursors" to Picasso and Giacometti, say archaeologists"

The earliest of their 150,000 stick-style pictures date from the Neolithic period, but most of these Pitoti – “little puppets” – of the Valcamonica valley are thought by archaeologists to originate from the Iron Age. As the sun rises and falls, they gain a sense of movement.[...]valley-rock-art-film-cambridge

Edit; it was obviously not meant to go under Parc le Breos, apologies for that.
