Group Info

Palaeolithikum is a paleoart- and prehistory-themed Devianart Group with a heavy focus on the Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs. The content of the group is more preciously related to topics surrounding human origins, but also include flora and fauna of the Plio-Pleistocene, as well as environmental, climatic, and ecological themes from that span of time. Palaeolithikum is open to anyone with an interest in the topic of human origins research, but artwork submissions are restricted to those that attempt to adhere to a modicum of scientific accuracy (exceptions will be made for artwork that intentionally represents outdated interpretations that have an otherwise historical or cultural significance). Photography is also accepted into this group, but with a preference for examples that contain information about the specific find depicted and/or the species/taxon that is in the photo. Archaeology and palaeoanthropology are serious scientific disciplines, and as such, this group intends to display artwork that respects the methods and theoretical frameworks found in scientific study.

The results are in (albeit delayed) for the February Contest focusing on paleolithic art.

This time, ten people participated in our poll. In the end, the poll finished with a tie for first place, so we will have two new additions to our Featured gallery.

With the poll now closed, the final results are as follows:



:iconanonymousllama428: finished runner-up with 2 votes for his adaptation of the Loewenmensch statue from Hohlenstein Stadel.

Der Loewenmensch by AnonymousLlama428

:iconpelycosaur24: and :iconzimices: are joint winners of this contest with 4 votes each, with their adaptations of the Venus vom Galgenberg and late Pleistocene Brazilian cave paintings respectively.

The Dancing Venus by Pelycosaur24 and Brazilian llama - Lhama do Brasil by Zimices

As a final comment, I would like to make an honorable mention of a piece by :iconjesusgamarra: , which was intended for this contest but submitted past deadline. He has depicted Cro-Magnon's enacting a body painting ritual.

And ultimately: for those interested, don't forget to submit your entries for this month's contest, the topic being Holocene extinctions.

Cheers!

I checked on the admin area for user permissions, but the settings were not disabled for that gallery or the others. Could you try again? Not really sure what to do on my end for now. :/
