Venus of Grimaldi called the Lozenge

RF004013

New product

This feminine statuette or "Venus" was discovered at the end of the 19th century in the Balzi Rossi caves at Grimaldi in Italy, near the Franco-Italian border. It is attributed to the gravettian period (around -25,000 years).

This figurine sculpted in green soapstone was nicknamed "the Lozenge" because of a losangic silhouette, with a generous body but a head and reduced limbs.
It is a pregnant woman, with exaggerated sexual and maternal characteristics, who evokes fertility, an important notion for prehistoric hunter-gatherers.
