PostSubject: Willendorf Venus   Sun Jul 22, 2007 10:43 pm

The Willendorf Venus as she is called, is the oldest symbol of the Goddess to be yet discovered, Dating to 30,000 BCE, she is both the earliest depiction of the human form and the first known religious image of the Mother Goddess.

Though once cannot know for certain the use or meaning behind this figure, but it is most widely accepted that she was a symbolic fertility symbol, this due to the fact that she is shown in full pregnent glory. She is shown has having enlarged breasts, full hips, as well as a large around belly.
