Les Mains négatives

The hand paintings found in the Magdalenian caves of Sub-Atlantic Europe are called negative hands. The outline of these hands - laid wide open on the stone - was coated with colour. Most often blue, black. Sometimes red. No explanation has been found for this practice. In images of Paris at night, deserted, Marguerite Duras interprets as a call the traces of hands painted in prehistoric caves in Spain.
