This is known as the Venus of Predmosti Photo: G. Clark, 'The Stone Age Hunters' Photo: J Jelinek, 'The Evolution of Man' Stylised figure of engraved woman from Predmost, an area close to Dolní Věstonice. Height 15.5 cm From the book 'Plains of Passage' by Jean Auel, p537: Attaroa's speaking staff The staff itself was quite unusual. It was not newly carved, that much was obvious. The color had begun to turn creamy, and the area where it was usually held was gray and shiny, caused by the accumulated dirt and oils of the many hands that had held it. It had been used by many generations. The design carved into the straightened tusk was a geometric abstraction of the Great Earth Mother, formed by concentric ovals to shape the pendulous breasts, rounded belly, and voluptuous thighs. The circle was the symbol for all, everything, the totality of the known and unknown worlds, and symbolized the Great Mother of All. The concentric circles, especially the way they were used to suggest the important motherly elements, reinforced the symbolism. The head was an inverted triangle, with the point forming the chin, and the base, curved slightly into a domelike shape, at the top. The downward pointing triangle was the universal symbol for Woman; it was the outward shape of her generative organ and therefore also symbolized motherhood and the Great Mother of All. The area of the face contained a horizontal series of double parallel bars, joined by laterally incised lines going from the pointed chin up to the position of the eyes. The larger space between the top set of double horizontal lines and the rounded lines that paralleled the curved top was filled in with three sets of double lines that were perpendicular, joining where eyes would usually be. But the geometric designs were not a face. Except that the inverted triangle was placed in the position of a head, the carved markings would not even have suggested a face. The awesome countenance of the Great Mother was too much for an ordinary human to behold. Her powers were so great that Her look alone could overwhelm. The abstract symbolism of the figure on Attaroa's Speaking Staff conveyed that sense of power with subtlety and elegance. This appears to be a museum facsimile of the venus known as the Venus of Predmost. It is wonderful to have such a high quality photograph of this important work. Photo: Themis Source: picasaweb.google.com/byThemis/idolies Date: Sep 2, 2007 This appears to be a facsimile of the Predmost tusk, but it has been very well done, and is by far the clearest image of the carving I have seen.
