I feel that the prehistoric art is does not fall into modern ideas of abstract art. The images are precise and are easily identified for what they are. I do not feel like the prehistoric man spent hours, days or months on their art; therefore it was not as detailed as it could be. The lion-man could be viewed as abstracted art as it is a not real, then again it could be intentional, perhaps to tell a story like the boogie man.
