Information about the 'Venus of Hohle Fels'
The 2008 excavations at Hohle Fels Cave in the Swabian Jura of Southwestern Germany recovered a Female figurine (6cm high) carved from mammoth ivory from the basal Aurignacian deposit.
This figurine, which is the earliest depiction of a human, and one of the oldest known examples of figurative art world wide, was made at least 35000 years ago.
Although there has been a long history over the meaning of Palaeolithic Venuses their clear sexual attributes suggest that are a direct or indirect expression of fertility.
