venus of willendorf

the original figurine that you probably know from the history of arts books comes from paleolithic time. it was found in 1908 by a worker in austria, nearby willendorf. it turned out that it’s one of the oldest depictions of woman – it might had been made 22-24 thousands years ago!  many researchers see the fatty lady as a symbol of fertility.

this pendant is 7,15g of sterling silver. it’s the central part of a necklace made of round garnet beads.  the whole length is 48cm, the height of the pendant is 22mm, the diameter of each garnet bead is 5mm.
