Venus - The Naked Truth
Venus von Willendorf
Ever since her discovery, the Venus of Willendorf
has made waves all over the world. Her celebrity exploded
when Facebook banned images of her due
to explicit nudity - despite the fact that she is made
of stone, stands just seven centimetres high and is
29,500 years old. The «Stone Age Mona Lisa» is one
of human history's oldest artworks - and a source
of mystery. With the help of Venus von Willendorf,
researchers now can dismantle accepted myths
about the Stone Age and make a fresh evaluation
of old archaeological discoveries essential. Experts
are coming ever closer to discovering the reality of
Stone Age societies and gender roles within them.
Scientists are shaking the traditional clichés and
found out that women went hunting, did hard labor
and were even warriors...
