Out of the limestone of the rock wall ice-age artists worked out a frieze of art in an embossed relief. The works of art were badly damaged in historical times. 15 figures have been remained- mainly horses- which are close to life size. The frieze could be seen widely throughout the valley and was futhermore painted on with red colour. Style IV (15.000-11.500 BP)
