The famous, highly stylized leopard-spotted horses of Pech Merle. I'm not convinced that these are really meant to be depictions of horses that really were leopard-spotted in life: note that spots like those present on the horses have been depicted elsewhere on the cave walls.

During the upper Palaeolithic (that is, between and years ago), prehistoric people in Europe and Asia (and elsewhere) depicted the animals they saw in thousands of piece of cave art.
