The most famous section of the cave is The Hall of the Bulls where bulls, equines, and stags are depicted.
The four black bulls, or aurochs, are the dominant figures among the 36 animals represented here.
The cave contains nearly 6,000 figures, which can be grouped into three main categories: animals, human figures, and abstract signs.
The paintings contain no images of the surrounding landscape or the vegetation of the time.
