The Stoneage Venus of Willendorf Replica

This is an extraordinary piece of stone age art and worship - over 20.000 years old, it underlines the female power and the appreciation females received. Stone age art and worship idols are predominantly female, perhaps due to the fact that only female knew the family lineage of heritage, as only they knew by whom the child was conceived with. Unsurprisingly, in later iron age patriarchal societies, female deities make place for male deities, and the female social status in society seems to have diminished with the vanishing of female deities.

The original Venus of Willendorf

The figurine dates from between 24.000 and 22.000 B.C.E. and was made from oolith limestone, a type of chalk stone which must have been imported to the village of Willendorf in Austria, where it was found in the year 1908.

The voluptuous female figurine is more expressive than any other figurine we know from the high-Palaeolithic times. The female sexual characteristics are very explicit and in contrast to the disguised face even enlarged. It may support the above interpretation of the link between sexuality and religious, political standing of female deities and female members of society.
