What precisely is prehistoric art? Some believe that prehistoric art is any art which does not show the human form remotely similar to what actually exists. That is, there is no definate nose, mouth, eyes, or other complex facial features. Some compare prehistoric art to the art of younger children playing with crayons and in some ways this belief is not entirely dissimilar to the actual truth.
Others believe prehistoric art to be merely that art which was created before the first civilizations. Artwork which is scattered across the Earth and essentially lacks any real form.

Correctly, however, prehistoric art is artwork created by a primitive people. Primitive people exist even today in remote section of Guinea, so a definition relating to a date cannot be used to define prehistoric art. Likewise, prehistoric art did not end with Egypt. It continued in other parts of the world as you shall see.
