This is the only representation of a human being in the entire cave. It is a stick figure, and the four fingers on each hand are splayed into fan shapes. The body is tilted at a 45° angle, no doubt to the bison's abrupt about-face.
Below the figure we can see a bird perched on a stick, although the silhouette is not defined enough for us to make out its species. It shares certain characteristics, even links, with the man below. These are unique themes for the cave; among other things, their heads have been drawn in a similar manner. In certain primitive or ancient societies, birds are often assigned the role of psychopomp, or conductor of souls.
