It's been 80 years since four teenagers discovered the Lascaux cave paintings in Montignac, France.

On September 12, 1940, one of the best examples of paleolithic art was revealed to the world.


After rescuing their dog from a small cavern in the woods, four French teenagers decided to explore further. They found a vast cavern, its walls adorned with images of animals and humans.
