FIG.1) JACQUES BOUCHER DE PERTHES (1788-1868) was called in France the "father of prehistory." We remember his commitment to the study of lithic sculptures "antidiluviennes", then called "stone figures". Other 19th and 20h centuries researchers,  of whom we publish some sculptures of lower and middle Paleolithic, were: E. Harroy, A. Thieullen, W.M. Newton, J. Dharvent, Ph. Helena, A. Juritzky, W. Matthes.
