I don’t agree that prehistoric art is abstract. I think the art of today is considered abstract so when I look at the art of today and then look at the prehistoric era I do not think the art from long ago is abstract. Abstract in my eyes is when a painting or image is not clear. You have to use your creative mind to understand the image. The art of the prehistoric area seemed to have structure and I was able to make out what I saw with no issues. The images had meaning and needed to be clear for others to understand.
