The Lady of Brassempouy
Reproduction patinated by hand. Mold made from an imprint of the original work exhibited at the National Archeology Museum of Saint-Germain-en-Laye
This statuette was discovered in 1894 by Edouard Piette and Joseph de Laporterie at the Pope's cave, Brassempouy (Landes ), probably in a layer attributable to the Upper Perigordian; it can be dated around 23,000 BC. Prehistoric representations of women are often associated with fertility, emphasizing feminine characteristics (the chest, the hips, etc.). The Lady of Brassempouy is distinguished from these Venus by its great plastic qualities, especially the care given to her hair, suggesting that it is an individualized portrait rather than a symbolic image.
