The meticulously faithful copy of what has been dubbed the "Sistine Chapel of prehistoric art" is now ready to be transported one segment at a time – 46 all together – and installed just down the road from the original at a site semiburied in a hillside in Montignac, in the Dordogne region.The International Centre of Parietal (rock wall) Art, 150 meters long and 9 meters high, designed by Norwegian architectural firm Snohetta, will open by the end of the year.The caves, discovered in 1940 by four teenagers, quickly became a massive tourist draw, with around a million people flocking to see the work of the oldest known modern humans, who came to Europe from Africa via Asia.
