Anthropologists wanted to know about the evolution of `Little Red Riding Hood' and also wanted to know that how the story spread.
As per a latest study released on Wednesday in the scientific journal PLOS ONE, the researchers were capable of making a kind of `evolutionary tree', a mathematical model, for the well-accepted folk story. The same method is being used by biologists to study the development of species.

According to a latest report, the scientists have recently found some ancient cave paintings. They were actually in search for the white-lipped peccaries or pig-like animals, but instead of finding the remains of those they found very old cave drawings.
According to the statistics by a Wildlife Conservation Society, these paintings have been once created by the hunter-gatherer societies about 4,000 to 10,000 years ago. Also, the scientists have found these paintings in the Brazil's Pantanal and Cerrado biomes.

Men had always taken over women in the history of art. However, it can be concluded that the pioneers of painting were probably women. The great names include Leonardo, Rembrandt, and Picasso.
The pictures developed by the blowing pigment over a hand can be considered as the earliest forms of the pre-historic art. Sources have witnessed the stencils for the same from almost every corner of the world.
However, it is said that the best known instances for the same can be obtained from the caves in southwest France and northern Spain.
