Geometric cave art

Anthropologists discovered simple geometric figures in caves of prehistoric times such as dots, lines, circles and triangles, dating older than the last ice age, over 40,000 years ago. The creative output in abstract form indicates the development of cognitive traits such as an understanding of form, possibly used as an early form of language. Shapes just as words have symbolic meaning through which we are able to transmit information.
