35,000 yr old Venus Statue! Photo


www.nytimes.com

No one would mistake the Stone Age ivory carving for a Venus de Milo. The voluptuous woman depicted is, to say the least, earthier, with huge, projecting breasts and sexually explicit genitals.

At least 35,000 years old, it is “one of the oldest known examples of figurative art” in the world. It is about 5,000 years older than some other so-called Venus artifacts made by early populations of Homo sapiens in Europe.

Here's another picture. Not much doubt that the sculptor was a breast man. But it's interesting that there is no head just a loop (for a necklace strap?) And there are the odd pointy legs and no feet.

Neanderthals still existed in Europe at this time - 35,000 years ago - but it's thought that this wasn't made by them... since they didn't make much in the 1000s of years before this - so why start then.

It does look like a roast chicken with boobs, as my kid commented.

Anyway - still cool - enjoy!

Pish posh, Earth didnt exist more than 5000 years ago according to the bible and darwinians tell me that if there were people that long ago tey were too busy flinging poo at eachother to care about art!

How dare hard facts and evidence try to wake us out of our slumber and defy widely held beleifs, shaking the foundations of our narrow-minded vision of recorded history.

Whoever carved it did a better job than I ever could. That Venus character must have been very important to these people, seeing as how they continued creating statues of her for tens of thousands of years.

But wait a second, the entire universe has only existed for 6,000 years, so how could this have possibly been made???

^
sarcasm if you couldn't tell. No one believes the earth is only 6000 years old right? thats just silly

I guess people have liked boobs since the dawn of time.

When they refer to "venus de milo" carvings, they are saying that it is the vision of absolute beauty at the time. The Venus de Milo from Greece (i think) was titled venus de milo but has the same ideals. The most beautiful woman of the time.

Fertility icons exist in almost every culture, these objects which are thought to be able to protect or increase fertility were used in ritualized and private practice.

The phallus obviously was for females and their fertility while the Venus is for males. Simple research will provide many examples.

It will just keep going back farther and farther untill the christians and the evolutionists both team up against science.

If this is indeed what represents the desired beauty of women by the society of that day, then I think they had it totally wrong.
All t'n'a and no brain?
somebody correct me here.

Women have been "kept down" for that long? I notice they say the symbolism is debated but they don't go indepth.
