The Venus of Willendorf was found by the researcher Szombathy on August 7, 1908. It is made out of limestone and still has some signs of red pigmentation; it fits in the palm of a hand. It is one of the most obese representations of the Paleolithic statuary. This famous Venus represents the Earth and its fertility and continuation of life, the Mother Goddess, the universal female principle in one of its earliest conceptions.
