Piece of extremely rare prehistoric art - exact replica. Venus of Dolni Vestonice , South Moravia, the Czech Republic, Europe , 25,000 - 29,000 years old . Resin copy of the ceramic original. Is absolutely impossible to get any original venus (its price is at least 500 million $), so every collector can have copies only. This one is directly made from the original. The Venus of Dolní Věstonice is a ceramic sculpture of a woman. It is estimated to be 25,000 - 29,000 years old, and thus falls into the Gravettian. The sculpture was found during extensive archaeological excavations headed by Karel Absolon in 1924 – 1938 in Dolní Věstonice in Moravia, in what is now the district of Břeclav. The excavations revealed a mammoth hunters’ camp from the Stone Age. The sculpture is 11.5 cm high and at its widest point, around the pelvis, it measures 4.3 cm. Some parts of the body have been sliced very credibly, while others are only obscurely disguised. The throat was not modeled at all, while the hands and feet are only hinted at. Less care was taken over the face. The eyes are just two small slits. When carving the figure the artist paid special attention to those parts of the body associated with sexuality, or fertility, i.e. the breasts, vulva, and abdomen. There are varied interpretations of the Venus of Dolní Věstonice. Some deduce it as a symbol of fertility or the sexual. Others say that the Venus of Dolní Věstonice is a cryptogram representing the synthesis of the symbol of womanhood on the lower parts of the body (the legs in the shape of a triangle) and the symbol of manhood on the upper part of the body (the head thrust forward and the sagging breasts beneath it). It could also portrayed a heavenly body or could also be related to magic. A tomograph scan in 2004 found a fingerprint of a child estimated at between 7 and 15 years of age, fired into the surface.
