THE VENUS OF WILLENDORF: A FOLLOW-UP TO MY PREVIOUS POST

Google Venus of Willendorf, and you will get plenty of information about it.

Here are just a few links:

http://www.arthistoryresources.net/willendorf/willendorfdiscovery.html

And the image of the Venus of Willendorf is taken from http://home.insightbb.com/~katrinaro/venus.html

What does this have to do with Gregory Stock’s question, and my answer, in the previous post?  Notice that this prehistoric representation of a human female has an unmistakably feminine body–yet no face at all!
