DAILY ART FIX: Missouri cave with ancient Native American drawings sold

Art world links which caught my eye…

This undated photo provided by Alan Cressler shows a Missouri cave featuring artwork from the Osage Nation dating more than 1,000 years was sold at auction on Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2021. The art inside "Picture Cave" shows humans, animals and mythical creatures. Experts who have studied the cave were concerned about the auction, but the director of the auction company said protections are in place to prohibit the new buyer from exploiting the cave, including a Missouri law that makes doing so a crime.

Missouri cave featuring artwork from the Osage Nation dating more than 1,000 years was sold at auction on Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2021

A property which includes cave with art more than 1,000 years old has sold in Missouri.

The cave features drawings of people, animals, birds and mythical creatures. Diaz-Granados said various means were used to create the art. Charred botanical material was used to draw. For one depiction of a mythical being, the artist created a white figure by scraping off the brown sandstone.

Diaz-Granados said the intricate details set the Missouri cave apart from other sites with ancient drawings.

“You get stick figures in other rock art sites, or maybe one little feather on the top of the head, or a figure holding a weapon,” she said. “But in Picture Cave you get actual clothing details, headdress details, feathers, weapons. It’s truly amazing.”
