The Cave of the Trois-Frères is a cave in southwestern France famous for its cave paintings. It is located in Montesquieu-Avantès, in the Ariège département. The cave is named for the three sons of Comte Bégouen who discovered it in 1914. The drawings of the cave were made famous in the publications of the Abbé Henri Breuil. The cave art appears to date to approximately 13,000 BC.
The painting, known as "The Sorcerer" is the "most famous and enigmatic human figure" with the features of several different animals, whose exact characteristics remain a matter of debate.
