Since 2012, Tastet Cave (Sainte-Colome, Pyrénées-Atlantiques) is the subject of a new research program led by one of the authors (JMP). This program offered the opportunity to restudy the parietal art from this site. The parietal art in Tastet Cave has been known since the 1970s ; its restudy by three of the authors (DG, OR and RB) offers an updated view of the figures, slightly different from that of the previous publications (Omnès 1983 ; Blanc and Marsan 1984). In particular, it has been possible to replace this art within the chronological and stylistic framework of the Middle and Upper Magdalenian from the Pyrenean and Cantabrian region.
