The reason it is so eerie to think of a Neanderthal making a hand-image is that the painted hands - not to mention bison, horses and mammoths - found in European caves have come to be seen as the moment when the modern human mind itself is born: the first evidence not just of the intelligence of Homo sapiens but our capacity to imagine and dream, to reflect, in short to possess consciousness.
These endocasts approximated the size and shape of brains contained within the braincases, and as Homo sapiens evolved over time, the researchers found a gradual change from an elongated endocranial shape to the more roundish one we have today.
Until now, the oldest Homo sapiens fossils outside Africa had come from two other cave sites in Israel, including one also on Mount Carmel, about 90,000 to 120,000 years old.
