Another member of this group, Michel Chabaud, along with two others, travelled further into the cave and discovered the Gallery of the Lions, the End Chamber. Chauvet has his own detailed account of the discovery. Further study by French archaeologist Jean Clottes has revealed much about the site. The dates have been a matter of dispute but a study published in supports placing the art in the Aurignacian period, approximately 32,—30, years ago. A study published in using additional 88 radiocarbon dates showed two periods of habitation, one 37, to 33, years ago and the second from 31, to 28, years ago, with most of the black drawings dating to the earlier period.

The traditional skin clothing of the Inuit is a complex system of cold-weather garments historically made from animal hide and fur , worn by the Inuit , a group of culturally related indigenous peoples inhabiting the Arctic areas of North America and Greenland. The most basic traditional outfit consisted of a coat parka , pants, mittens, inner footwear, and outer boots made of animal hide and fur. The most common sources of hide were caribou , seals and seabirds , although other animals were used when available. Production of warm, durable clothing was an essential survival skill for the Inuit, which was traditionally passed down from adult women to girls. Preparation of clothing was an intensive, weeks-long process that occurred on a yearly cycle following traditional hunting seasons. The creation and use of skin clothing was strongly intertwined with Inuit religious beliefs.

Besides the cuisine, one of the most recognizable features of any culture in the world is its traditional costume. While no longer worn in everyday life — having been replaced by worldwide fashion trends that leave little room for old-fashioned garb — traditional Dutch clothing has become a celebrated icon around the world. The most famous item is the often-mimicked wooden clogs, or klompen , but these shoes are not the only hallmarks of Holland. Each region in the Netherlands has its own historical clothing, made for everyday wear or specific occasions such as weddings or funerals — all of which can be viewed, enjoyed and even tried on at Het Klederdrachtmuseum , also known as the Dutch Costume Museum, in Amsterdam. Aside from the wooden shoes, traditional Dutch costume includes a variety of dresses, pants and shirts, hats and other accessories that vary by region and, in many cases, by village.

While phalluses made from stone, wood, leather and even camel dung have all be found during excavations, or referenced throughout historical text and images.
