Artist’s impression of the famed “Venus of Willendorf” artifact.

The Woman* of Willendorf is the oldest three-dimensional representation of a human being. A window into our paleolithic past! Nobody really knows if she is a lucky talisman, an object of worship, purely decorative or what. Whoever she is and whatever her purpose this woman's image survived from around 30,000 bc.

* more famously known as Venus of Willendorf - although it's becoming recognised that using this term projects a whole bunch of 19 C western assumptions about the female figure and its' purpose in art of onto a culture we know very little about. Ie - they assumed it was to titillate. Modern scholarship rejects this.
