I studied and made stone tools for Antropological prehistory in the late 70s and early 80s. Is she "blind" like "Justice" to the foibles of individuals? Another characteristic of note is that she's been painted with red ochre. Just my impressions based upon absolutely nothing ... But from this angle they're her skinny girl-arms held across her breasts. I'm not that worried about proportions of the sculpture being cartoonish.I wondered why these "scrapers" had suddenly become 10,000 years older so I looked up the original article on the dig which I have linked. Another still-existent method of insect repellent, sunscreen, and body decoration. Did these people paint themselves red daily as a matter of course, occasionally as a matter of symbolic tradition, or did they just paint their totems? The marks appear to be of roughly equal depth and roughly equal height and at roughly equal spacing. The man may be my ex, but his mom is not, we still talk a couple times a month. I have a gut feeling that all humans bow and so do some primates. Perhaps this is the significant "feature" of this Venus when seem in connection with the "prosperous natural bounty" indicated by her big tits. Realism in sculpture only pops up in the last 5000 years. In the book "Red Queen" a geneticist offers evidence that a high quality male peacock's plumes are indicators of low genetic abnormality and this entices a breeding female.However, I am inclined to the belief that a fertility image would be more like the sculptures of Venus and Aphrodite by the old Greeks and Romans.
They might have some abstract intellectual understanding of the issue and respect you. If you have it, you can say to the mountain ‘move’, and it will move. What good is it if a person gains the world and loses their soul in the process. This is why read my lips, try to be at open to the possibility of a spiritual partnership when searching for true love.
But if I were a traveller and didn't have a breadboard, and just needed to repair my bootstraps, or cut a few thongs to string the ostrich egg beads I'd just crafted on, for later trade or gifts, I might just use a handy rock. Why when I was your age we actually had to go outside and find them.
I may not have even made that rock, just found it handy at the time, and discarded it. Nowadays you "cave dwellers" just pick over the rocks my generation left for you.
It is interesting that the Venus of Willendorf wears a "beanie" (hat). "Knowledge grows through infinite timelessness" -- the random fictional Deepak Chopra quote site "Imagine an ennobling of what could be" -- the New Age BS Generator site "You are also taking my words out of context." -- Justin "Nullius in verba" -- The Royal Society ["take nobody's word for it"] #ANDAMOVIE Is Trump in jail yet? Both treatments would reduce lice (and other parasites), since they both smother the little blighters.
I don't know if the "beanie" is wool or reed, beaded or non-beaded but nevertheless she wear a "woven" hat. Additionally, the Venus of Willendorf motif survived in Europe for another 10,000 years probably making her (what ever she was) the longest lasting of all human gods. I openly wonder if there are any health benefits in having dreadlocks. I never understood why her "beanie" covered her eyes. Both methods are still seen in isolated tribal peoples.
