This statue, know as the Venus of Willendorf, was discovered in Austria. It is a 4-3/8 inch tall statuette of a female figure dated at 30,000 years old, carved from an oolitic limestone that is not local to the area, and tinted with red ochre. Who could have created and left behind this artifact nearly 20,000 years before human civilization appeared?
