I just think this is pretty amazing. This sculpture is thought to be about 5,000 years older than other artifacts of the same likeness found in what is now Germany.

I love when new (old) stuff like this is uncovered, and forgive me, but I love that this sculpture is actually pretty lewd! It's somewhat comforting to know that homo sapiens of 40,000 years ago were just as perverted as we are today.

What are your thoughts on this new find? Does it change anything about what we know about art and sculpture, and how/where it evolved? This is around the same area where the first Neanderthal remains were found. Perhaps it wasn't a homo sapien at all who carved it?

No matter how much time goes by, nor how far our civilization may evolve, the human experience is constant and unchanging, which artifacts such as this prove.

Maslow's Hierarchy is just as true on a Sociological level as on an individual Psychological level.

Next to food, water and shelter, the next basic need common to our species since the dawn of our time is sex. For the fact that they would make art depicting sexual objects of desire shows that they were more evolved than we might have previously cared to believe. To have your food, water and shelter needs permanently met shows that they must have had methods of obtaining plenty of food to sustain their population, methods of storing food to keep them fed through the lean months, a reliable water source, such as a cistern or well, and housing of some sort, even if it were in caves. This statuette denotes a rudimentary civilization prior to Catalhoyuk, and is thus a very important find indeed!

We like to think as our ancient ancestors as primitives, but in reality they weren't as different from us as we are today, as uncomfortable as that may seem.

Why doesn't it look like a monkey? Isn't that supposed to be
around the time that we were all hunched over and dragging
our knuckles?

No,i think you should do some more reading.
And look! shes fat! correlates to the fact that being overweight was a sign of wealth and power,very sexy for a man in those times and even times today.Study was done that shows men when hungry find more "volomptuous" woman more sexy as opposed to when they are full.

I think your order is skewed. SEX is number 1! Mankind, especially "man" kind will give up food, water, and shelter for sex. It is the most highly ingrained "instinct" of intelligent animals (not just human).

Survival of species comes before survival of self.

Mother's will starve in order to feed their children, even though it is illogical. Men will die battling wolves or lions to protect their families.

Back on topic: Great find. I love these old artifacts also, and I like the monkey comment. I have never seen a monkey carve out a likeness of anything, so the creator of this artifact was a little more advanced than science gives them credit.

Not at all, and I'm really appalled that anybody could go through life so uninformed as to our origins.

These people were fully modern humans, every bit as human as you or me. They had culture, language and obviously a highly advanced concept of art.

Hi, Monger.

You are right !

And for those who "seriously" want to know about our human history, read:

Nice find.

Most of these types of statues are attributed to "fertility icons", but I've always disagreed with that. I think we're looking at a very old depiction of erotic art.

Modern man is supposed to be from the out-of-Africa
theory,(150,000 years ago)although that theory is a bit up the
left now since they have now found evidence that the Chinese
were pottering about their own country for a similar time.

I thought it looked like what I imagined Janet Reno looked like after a breast enhancement.

I read somewhere .. and I don't remember where .. that people who study cave drawings don't release many pictures of their findings. They only release the very few that aren't sexual in nature. They said that most come across like oversexed teenage boys scrawling pictures their latest conquests on cave walls. Everything is sexual in nature. Finding pictures of stoneage people chasing bison with spears is something that seldom happens.

They were all oversexed and focused on sex.
