The Venus of Willendorf is one of the oldest artifacts ever found. She is nearly 30,000 years old and although we believe she is a fertility charm there’s just no way of ever truly knowing without stealing a time machine (maybe the Doctor will let us borrow his ;D ) but back to business. We only believe she is a fertility figure because of her fairly large….. endowments. It is unclear of whether she is innovative or traditional because because again we just don’t have any way of knowing what kind of world she lived in. She is just too old for us to ever truly know her.
