This molding is the reproduction of a mammoth ivory statuette discovered in 1922 by R. et S. de Saint-Périer in the Grotte des Cureaux, on the commune of Lespugue, Haute-Garonne.
The Lespugue Venus originally measured 147 mm but was broken at the time of discovery.
This feminine statuette with its ample and generous forms comes from a higher level of Périgordian whose absolute age can be estimated at approximately 21,000 years BC. It is part of the collections of the Musée de l' Homme de Paris.
