Today in eight segments (Figure 9.30), the drawing was probably made with a finger dipped in paint or directly with a block of colouring material. The left extremity curves like the back-line of an animal (rump, spine). The coloured deposits left on the rugged surface mark its direction. Hitherto it had not been possible to see it, despite this same wall having been recorded and photographed from all angles. On the old photographs and in the publications, it never appears (Martin 1973: 156). No other point of utilization of this painting is known at present, but it is necessary to recall here that several square metres of wall (original entrance and part of the gallery) have been destroyed.
