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
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!
