For 20 000 years, in Lascaux, Niaux, Chauvet, Combe-Nègre, Marsoulas and in hundreds of other caves, prehistoric man decorated the walls with horses and bisons, along with deer, ibex, aurochs.. However, our intention to restore the wild fauna of ancient times has not yet lead us to reintroduce mammoths, lions and rhinos into the Reserve!

There to the Gates; on the pathways of Night and Day.
Held fast in place between the lintels above and the threshold of stone.
They reach right up into the heavens filled with gigantic doors.
And the keys now open, now lock; are held fast by Justice;
She who always demands exact returns.
And with soft seductive words the girls cunningly persuaded her
To push back immediately, just for them, the bar that bolts the gates.
And as the doors flew open, making the bronze axles with their pegs and nails spin ~
Now one, now the other ~ in their pipes they created a gaping chasm.
Straight through and on, the girls held fast their course, for the chariot and horses,
Straight down the road.
