cavepainting robots

with basic shape recognition and maybe a wire to [link to/communicate with] the surface
  [vote for,

instead of being down there in the cave ,as in ancient times, and recognising shapes on the walls that might ,with a bit of painting & tweaking ,make a good horse or buffalo shape; how about a robot-- ,small and maneauvrable ,equipped with a camera and horse recognition technology and able to fit in spaces where humans couldnt reach and a once a patch of rock deemed horseable enough is found , an artist can be alerted to teleoperate the robot to make a painting

       Why not have robots paint robots on the walls. That'd f**k with peoples' heads. Better yet, get horses to do the painting on the artists.

       Cool, but...   

       If the robot you invent draws a ruminant where *you* can't see or reach it, no-one else will see it either.   

       Unless you use it to draw on ceilings, etc.. Say, five metres from floor level. Freak out some future archaeologists! :)   

       How about a paint roller, with a bison stamp incorporated?

       Who says it has no historical significance? I think that's for hencity to decide. Croissant.

       I like the idea, obviously. How about graffiti-bots that paint all over abandoned buildings and fences in urban areas?

       Just get a branding iron and melt your shape into a cave wall.
