Just as in prehistoric times, visitors today can leave behind handprints at Spain's Maltravieso cave, a Paleolithic site dating back more than 20,000 years. "Elena's hand [pictured] was typical for little girls," said Snow.

Hand proportions vary across populations. To assess prehistoric handprints from Europe, Snow used modern hands for comparison.

"I had access to lots of people of European descent who were willing to let me scan their hands as reference data," said Snow, whose research was supported by the National Geographic Society's Committee for Research and Exploration.
