A drawing on the wall of the Lascaux caves in France has a graphical representation of the Pleiades open cluster of stars. Another star chart panel, created more than 21,000 years ago, was found in the La Tête du Lion grotto.
The bovine in this panel may represent the constellation Taurus, with a pattern representing the Pleiades just above it.
Note that a star chart differs from an astronomical catalog, which is a listing or tabulation of astronomical objects for a particular purpose.
Tools utilizing a star chart include the astrolabe and the planisphere. Rappenglueck has suggested that a panel in the same caves depicting a charging bison, a man with a bird's head and the head of a bird on top of a piece of wood, together may depict the summer triangle, which at the time was a circumpolar formation.
This may have served as a prototype for the oldest European printed star chart, a 1515 set of woodcut portraits produced by Albrecht Dürer in Nuremberg, Germany.
