A newly discovered mural is one of many in 12 of Afghanistan’s famed Bamian caves that show evidence of an oil-based binder.The binder was used to dry paint and help it adhere to rocky surfaces.This cave and rock paintings, founded mainly in Western Europe, are scattered all over the world (Spain, Algeria, Siberia, France, the Sahara, etc.).To date, only in France discovered about 100 caves with the images, which at one time was a sensation.The murals—and the remains of two giant, destroyed Buddhas—include the world’s oldest known oil-based paint, predating European uses of the substance by at least a hundred years, scientists announced late last month.Researchers made the discovery while conducting a chemical analysis as part of preservation and restoration efforts at Bamian, which lies about 145 miles (240 kilometers) northwest of the Afghan capital, Kabul.
"Realistic mastery" of the ancient paintings might have many envied modern animal artists.
A Buddhist mural dated to around the seventh century A. is one of many in Afghanistan’s Bamian Valley that were recently found to contain oil- and resin-based paints.
The use of the substances at such an early date is a surprise, since they require sophisticated knowledge of chemical properties, scientists say.
But in the full sense of the term murals emerged in the late Paleolithic period, ie 40 - 20 thousand years ago.
The discovery of Paleolithic art: petroglyphs, reliefs, drawings, paintings, etc., revealed artistic level of previous generations, which remained inaccessible for thousands of years.
