Venus of Wilendorf Figure

Regular price $20.00 Sale

Venus of Willendorf, also called Woman of Willendorf or Nude Woman, Upper Paleolithic female figurine found in 1908 at Willendorf, Austria, that is perhaps the most familiar of some 40 small portable human figures (mostly female) that had been found intact or nearly so by the early 21st century. (Roughly 80 more exist as fragments or partial figures.) The statuette—made of oolitic limestone tinted with red ochre pigment—is dated to circa 28,000–25,000 BCE.  It has been suggested that she is the embodiment of overflowing fertility, a good-luck totem and a mother goddess symbol.


This sweet and powerful goddess figure stands at about 3.25" tall. 

Made of gypsum concrete with no harmful chemicals.
