We present her some thirty painted blocks found in the Neolithic level of Chaves cave that show geometric and figurative decoration. Complex themes (anthropomorphic figures, crosses, groups of convergent lines) were concentrated oover a paved surface, which presented a geat quantity oof ashes. There were oother blocks ( the ones with vertical lines) that were associated with two pits opened in the cardial pottery level. The existencee of a praying figure in a block remembers the cadial world of Coova de l'Or and the parietal art of Petracos. Other themes (anthropmophic cosses in << phi>>, triangular-headed figre) are similar to those oof schematic art, for which a Nelithic chronology is propoosed in Aagon.
