42000 year-old painting
The oldest known human painting is from Cueva de Nerja, in Spain, painted some 42000 years ago. Of course, traditions of art may have gone back further, probably done on wood and bones and didn't last. What's most interesting is that these were done by Neanderthals, not Homo Sapiens. It takes down the idea that art was a sudden invention that just happened in the Aurignacian period, which is still a commonly believed misconception.
