Venus of Willendorf Replica Cast

Price: $25.00
A replica of the paleolithic carving of a female figure found near Krems, Austria in 1908.   The material used was a non local limestone, and the original had some red ochre on the surface.   Several similar artifacts have been found throughout Europe also dating to the Paleolithic, but this example is the most famous and complete(at 4.4 inches tall).   Estimated to be around 25,000 years old, it was carved by a Paleolithic culture we do not know much about.   There are many theories about what she represents, having such exaggerated features, but this is all speculation.   The feet look broken but examination shows they are complete the way it was originally finished.   The head has no facial features, and it is unkown for sure if the pattern there represents a headress or hair style.   This replica is made in epoxy, and is a great example of early art in Paleolithic Europe.
