The tale of how Coencas and friends discovered the site of the Lascaux cave paintings – a stunning display of prehistoric art in the Dordogne region of southwest France – is like something out of a children's adventure book.Lascaux 2, an earlier copy of the site, opened in 1983, but it reproduced only 90 percent of the cave's wall art.Lascaux 3 is a traveling exhibition showing highlights from the site.The new reproduction of the site took a team of 30 workers four years to complete at a cost of 66 million euros ($70 million).One problem with Lascaux 2 was that it is up the hill and too close to the original site, given the volume of visitors and traffic.Located in the village, the new site will take the pressure off the hillside site.
