Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music. ~Ronald Reagan
May have pushed back the time span, but the subject's nothing new (so to speak)!
Remember the "Venus" of Willendorf?
This "Venus" (of Brassempouy) is of similar antiquity, although not so overtly... umm... sexual as Ms W.

Well, better than nekkid men......personally, not what I ever think about. Much less obsess over. Women? Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!!! Bring it on baby!:D :D :D
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

To further this notion, guys do kill rivals for a women, but women will seldom do the same. I bet this notion/instinct goes waaaay further back than 35,000 years. People had just evolved enough to begin leaving conceptual evidence behind about that time.
I can tell you when the nylons and heels obsession came along. When I was about nine.
If those statues are what the girls really looked like back then, I would've been pretty obsessed with getting some kind of bag over them.
Anyway, that is what I have read.
The above revelation is, in the end, fairly trite. In Anthropology the 'interpretation' of what an artifact 'means' involves a fair amount of guess work. Carvings of naked women don't prove much of 'anything' it is the behavior associated with those carvings that would inform us as to 'why' they existed, 'why' they were made, 'what' they were used for, etc! This article cannot provide that; so much of it is mere conjecture. There is unfortunately a lot of conjecture in this field. I ought to know.
absolutely true. There is a classic Calvin and Hobbes cartoon in which Calvin, imagining himself an archaeologist (or paleoanthropologist) in some distant future, is pondering the significance of a found relic (which contemporary eyes recognize as a coat hanger). Possibly it has some ritual significance.
all the best,
I'll be listening/feeling for the waves Hard Marky! Safe trip mon.
Whatever was going on in the mind of the man who carved it, not much has changed in our minds for the last 35000 years, we just have better technology now. :)
Let me tell you something about life, around every corner monsters await. I know, I am one.
If I owned hell and this place, I would rent this place out and live in hell.

The genuine significance is that it wasn't a tool, like an arrow head, etc. Other things showed up during that general time period. Like antler carvings, cave paintings, bone flutes, etc. Human minds had changed sufficiently so as to want individuals to take the time to create these artifacts that had no immediate practical purpose. Therefore, these articles must have had abstract value.
That's probably where musical rhythms originated also.
Once you see one women naked...well, you want to see the rest of them naked. :D
You'd think this would be where they'd post the foreign Viagra ad.
Not the DIY/mods section.

Sure was! He's friggen hilarious. Especially when right after saying that he acted out some old lady rolling up her saggy boobies and tucking them back in her shirt. That will always be funny :)
