Venus de Lespugue. Haute-Garonne, France. Upper Palaeolithic Gravetian, 25,000 BC. (approx.)
Found in 1922, the original is sculpted from mammoth ivory and is 14,7 cm high. The breasts are somewhat deteriorated, although in this reproduction we have restored them to their original state. With her arms folded over her chest, her legs, which are very short, have a sort of triangular skirt on the front, which covers part of her thighs.
An expression of the Universal Feminine Principle, massive and graceful, like the rest of the Palaeolithic representations of the Mother Goddess, she is a symbol of procreation, fertility and the continuation of life.
