The right-hand edge of this trapezoidal rocky recess is covered in calcite. It is decorated with 48 large "dots" and a positive hand print. The hand has been applied with the fingers slightly spread. Here, it can be seen that the entire hand has been covered with dye, while it seems that only the palm was coloured to produce the dots and that the artist took care to avoid touching the cave wall with his fingers. The presence of a dot marked by the flesh of the first phalange of the middle finger makes it possible to deduce the orientation of the hands.
