The cave of Chufín is a unique cave art site in northern Spain

Located near the town of Riclones in Cantabria. Rock art pops inside the steep slopes above the water. Chufín is another one of cave arts sanctuaries.
The small cave has some subtle engravings and paintings of red deer, goats, and cattle. Represented schematically. They are dating to around 20,000 years ago.

Also found in the cave are symbols, and what could have been early forms of communication. One group, called “sticks”, accompanies the paintings inside animals. There are also many drawings using points (puntillaje). One of which has been interpreted as representing a vulva.
