Engraved deer - cave of Pergouset
Engraved deer with a long neck, discovered inside room IV of the open cave of Le Pergouset. This cave faces south of the cliff, and dominates the right bank of the Lot by about ten metres.
The entrance is at the confluence of the Lot and Célé rivers, both of which are nearby. This area has many decorated caves, including Pech-Merle, Carriot, Christian and la Bigourdane.
This casting is a work made from the original parietal engraving and interpreted by the artist Mr Gérard Souquet from numerous photographic surveys of the Pergouset cave.
