  1. Seriously, 45,000 years old drawing?
    Ha, we can’t find any authentic iron blades from the early Middle Ages, but here’s a drawing… )))
    What kind of paint is that?

    • George, The “paint” is ochre which is really a clay earth pigment which is made of ferric oxide and clay or sand. Most of these cave paintings, all over the world, uses ochre. Colors range from yellow to orange, to brown. Wouldn’t objects made of iron be subject to rusting and while rusting would eventually disappear?
