Obsession with Naked Women Dates Back 35,000 Years    
If human culture  seems obsessed with sex lately, it's nothing new. Archaeologists have discovered the oldest known artistic representation of a woman - a carved ivory statue of a naked female, dating from 35,000 years ago.

The figurine, unearthed in September 2008 in Hohle Fels Cave in southwestern Germany, may be the oldest known example of figurative art, meaning art that is supposed to represent and resemble a real person, animal or object. The discovery could help scientists understand the origins of art and the advent of symbolic thinking, including complicated language.

"If there's one conclusion you want to draw from this, it's that an obsession with sex goes back at least 35,000 years," University of Cambridge anthropologist Paul Mellars told LiveScience. He was not involved in the new finding. "But if humans hadn't been largely obsessed with sex they wouldn't have survived for the first 2 million years. None of this is at all surprising..."

I'm not really seeing a naked woman there. Maybe a Koala bear humping an overinflated blow-up doll?

Or a midget making love to a headless woman?

Maybe naked women looked different back then.

BTW nice to see you back AHD.

I'm seeing an obsession with big thighs, bellies and improbable mammaries...notice how the head is so small as to be unimportant?  Some things have not changed.   Wink

I'm amused.  I love the Venus figures -- I actually wear a small pendant of one at all times.  The enhanced breasts, bellies and thighs emphasize fertility -- no stick-thin catwalk waifs for our ancestors!

As for the lack of head...I think the comment I made regarding that feature to my roommate yesterday was "OOG NO WANT HEAR TALK WHILE OOG SEX!"

Let this be a lesson: not matter where you hide your porn stash somebody will find it sooner or later.

Good advice.

I hope the younger members of this board are taking note... Wink
