Projects > Vénus > Figurines

Venus figurines is a term used for small carved female figures from the Upper Paleolithic era.  Little is know about them and that lack of knowledge adds to their mystery.  Whether these figurines were fertility symbols, pregnant goddesses, symbolic archetypes, Earth Mothers or religious icons, their voluptuous bodies evoque the power of life energy embodied in the feminine.  

These clay figures are studies; in the form, symbolism, beauty and power of ancient women.
