    I think one can overstretch the imagination...

    Among the oldest symbols which were REALLY closer to runes are those of the Vinča culture in South Eastern Europe, they had a lot of symbols on their artefacts:

    About the culture:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vin%C4%8Da_culture

    There might be also connections to Mesopotomia, where such symbols were used as well. But the real runes seem to be the product of a re-interpretation of Greek, Latin or Etruscan Alphabets rather, but some symbols might have come from Mesopotamia in the Neolithics and spread to and with the Indo-Europeans, as the symbols like Svasticas are also well known from the Kurgan and Corded Ware groups, among the Indo-Iranians ("Aryans") etc.

    The Urox at the cavepainting is not an animal which has been hunted. It has a therefore most likely a mythological meaning.

    The rune URUZ is shaped after the outlines of an Urox

    In rune explanations its often said that the rune UR is connected to the Urox.

    If one does not see the rune there one at least has the original picture of what the rune stands for.

    Runes on the superficial level are for writing and therefore letters. But they do represent cosmic principals which are represented in symbols and those symbols are taken from nature or surroundings of the 'inventors'.

    Uruz as the primeval force is described as the urox as it had a primeval force in its body. Therefore the primeval force is represented either through the animal itself, a picture of the animal or the shortsign, the rune Ur, which is shaped like an urox.

    There is more to show but I am not at home and can't find the pics online.
