Modern Humans lived a short life. Modern Humans made fire, houses, and came up with the idea about domesticating animals and planting crops. Join us as we learn more about this fascinating group of hominids.
During the Paleolithic era, people used art to express their emotions. Modern humans painted scenes showing rocks, rivers, and animals. They painted on cave walls, rocks, and roofs. Another part of art they did was making jewelry from shells and bones. As well as jewelry, they made pottery, firing it to give it a good luster and lots of durability. They also made little statues of ivory and bone. Modern humans crushed up colored rocks to make paint. They used chalk for white, charcoal for black, and iron oxide for red paint. Modern humans used animals hair to make paintbrush bristles just as we do now.
