New collection of reproductions of prehistoric works of art

On the occasion of the winter solstice, 21 December 2020, it is a pleasure for TEMARTE to present to you, its new collection of reproductions of prehistoric works of art including the most famous Venus figurines, prehistoric furniture (bison, horses, mammoths, etc.), weapons and prehistoric fossils made from authentic pieces of certified origin.
All our reproductions come from the most prestigious prehistoric sites in Europe, and cover periods from the Palaeolithic to the Neolithic.

We find this aesthetic search in many objects from his everyday life that miraculously reached us and which are impregnated with an undeniable artistic sensitivity. When we discover the masterpieces created by these talented artists, we are amazed to observe, for example, the paintings in the caves of Lascaux or Chauvet.

The importance of the summer and winter solstices for prehistoric man.


Knowing the cycles of the seasons has been crucial for mankind since the Palaeolithic period, whether to follow the migrations of the animals they fed on, to protect themselves from the intense cold or to anticipate trips to hunting, fishing or gathering areas that were better adapted to the seasons. Observation of the surrounding nature and the experience of the elders could be sufficient to adapt to seasonal changes.        
But from the Neolithic period, around 10000 BC, with the evolution towards an increasingly sedentary way of life, the increase in populations, the appearance of new techniques and the development of livestock and agriculture, forecasting and a better understanding of the seasons became vital.
Mastering time means anticipating the difficult periods ahead and, in part, anticipating the future, protecting and improving crops, feeding and ensuring the survival of the community. Those who could interpret the signs that announced the changes of the seasons by means of reference points must surely have had a great deal of prestige and an almost supernatural, even divine, knowledge.

Giant megalithic constructions aligned according to the solstices.

Many megalithic constructions are aligned with solar positions such as the summer or winter solstices. Megalithic sites such as Stonehenge, the giant Newgrange tumulus, the Soto dolmen, etc. are just a few examples that demonstrate the importance of summer or winter solstices for these civilizations.

Every year, on December 21st, at the winter solstice, a ray of light penetrates through the small opening at the top of the entrance and gently makes its way along the collective tomb of Huerta Montero, illuminating the burial chamber located in its heart.

In the Neolithic period, the alignments of the menhirs, which are placed between the solstices and equinoxes, helped the initiates to predict the cycle of the coming seasons.
Certain alignments of menhirs, such as those at Carnac, responded to concerns other than the determination of seasonal dates. Composed of several hundred menhirs in parallel rows over several kilometres, they are oriented from east to west. It is not impossible that they were the materialisation of astronomical orientations and that they were to be a place of worship of prime importance.

Other remarkable natural cycles, such as the lunar cycle, are still used today to decide favourable moments in certain cultures and give rise to numerous festivities and celebrations.
