Example text

Entro sera, il «Team Ruac», come Luc lo aveva battezzato, era al completo. L'ultimo ad arrivare era stato l'israeliano Zvi Alon che, dopo aver visto il proprio camper, si era lamentato perché non aveva bisogno di tutto quello spazio. Per l'occasione, e per volontà della ministra dei Beni Culturali, era presente anche il caporedattore delle pagine culturali di Le Monde. In cambio dell'esclusiva sull'inaugurazione degli scavi, l'editore del prestigioso quotidiano aveva acconsentito a pubblicare l'articolo soltanto dopo il nullaosta ministeriale.

La salutò e la baciò sulle guance in modo formale, come se non fossero mai stati amanti. La sua pelle era quasi traslucida e lasciava intravedere i capillari. Prima di staccarsi da lei, Luc colse il profumo dei suoi capelli. Non era una fragranza chimica, ma il suo odore naturale, e lui ricordò quanto gli piaceva toglierle il fermaglio e lasciarle ricadere la chioma color castano chiaro sul petto. » Sara sfoggiava uno stile molto personale. La giacca di pelle nera da motociclista era resa più femminile dalla sciarpa di seta turchese, che esaltava il colore dei suoi occhi.

Difficile a dirsi. Lascaux è stata dipinta circa diciottomila anni fa. Questa non sembra così antica. Qui è anche stata usata un'intera tavolozza di pigmenti: carboncino, grafite, argille, ossido di ferro rosso e giallo, manganese. » La fine della prima caverna pareva segnalata dal dipinto estroso di un mammut, la cui proboscide era così gigantesca da passargli sotto le zampe. Più avanti, giunsero a un punto in salita in cui la caverna si restringeva, per fortuna non tanto da costringerli a strisciare.
