Mesolithic art in contrast was schematic and there were no such plastic figures that were present and the people used only the red color. This kind of art is found in the northern Mediterranean as well as North Africa.

It is amongst the most significant stages of the human evolution as it brought several changes in terms of art and culture. This age is known to make a mark as the beginning of the human expression in artistic forms. The artifacts belonging to this particular time period were mainly the rock and cave paintings.
