The review of The Tangled Wing: Biological Constraints on the Human Spirit, in the September 25, 2002, issue of JAMA, referred to "the fantastically painted Neanderthal caves of Lascaux." In fact, the Neanderthals are not known to have produced art, including representational art such as that of Lascaux. They disappear from the fossil record about 30 000 years ago, while the Lascaux paintings date from about 15 000 years ago.
