Is this the world’s oldest work of art? Sequence of hand and footprints discovered on the Tibetan Plateau dates back up to 226,000 years — and may be 'prehistoric graffiti' left by children

The 'art panel' was first discovered on a rocky outcrop in Quesang back in 2018
The prints were made into a limestone deposited near hot springs that hardened
Even a conservative dating estimate makes it 3–4 times older than other rock art
The team believe the prints were left by two children aged around seven and 12
