Layard discovered this lens (right) which is considered the first used (or found) plano-convex lens.This lens however was not "ground" and polished round but had facets which limited it's ability to magnify.

The reproduction shown here shows both a horizontal and straight view.It is therefore conceivable that early men saw 'movies' or cinematography, in their own homes as we do today.To this end, Gatton goes on,"Imagine, if you will, a Paleolithic person waking in the morning to find the image of animals walking around on the wall, the three-dimensional world reduced to two dimensions on a surface inside the tent."Although frontality tended to be emphasized through symmetry, leaving little opportunity for movement in the Old Kingdom, the Middle and New Kingdoms saw an emergence of boldness, drive, and inspiration in Egyptian art.Perhaps this is why the subjects where always living creatures, and not still life or landscapes.The pectographs and pictographs of horses, bulls, oxen and ibexes, mammoths, cats, rhinos, stags, bison, bovine, and bears are the most often documented art seen in caves. Still life and landscapes are not seen, or at least are rare.Afterall, is not the camera obscura simply a dark room with a hole?
