This early Stone Age art fall into one of two broad categories: pictures and ideomorphs painted or drawn on the walls and ceilings of caves (parietal art), and prehistoric sculpture (mostly mobiliary art) typically small female "venus figurines", usually unearthed at Stone Age settlement sites.
Hundreds of such figurines are known, nearly all between 2 and 8 inches in height.
Considered by late 19th century archeologists to represent the prehistoric idea of feminine beauty, they were dubbed "venuses" in reference to the Roman goddess of beauty.
In archeology, the term "Venus Figurines" is an umbrella description relating to Stone Age statuettes of women, created during the Aurignacian or Gravettian cultures of the upper Palaeolithic (c.33,000-20,000 BCE), throughout Europe from France to Siberia.
The general similarity of these sculptures - in size and shape [obese or pregnant] - is extraordinary.
