Old art.  Really old art.  Really, really old art.  In fact the oldest art ever found.  Neanderthals painted it on a cave in Spain between 43,500 and 42,300 years ago according to radio carbon dating.  

Were these seals painted by Neanderthals? (<i>Image: Nerja Cave Foundation</i>)

Anybody taking bets on when Erich von Daniken shows up to claim it's a DNA double helix that the cave people learned about from alien astronauts?

I think it looks like a couple fish kissing, but clearly I'm unenlightened.

Actually, now that I re-look at it I kinda like your two fish kissing theory.
