Citat:The finding is a sensation, since it offers a new light on the first artistic expressions of primitive man in Europe and probably in the whole world, informed Nicholas Conard, professor of archaeology from the University of Tuebingen and responsible for the excabations.

The figure, which measures just 6 centimeters long, was found in September during the excavations at Hohle Fels, close to Scheklingen, in the southern German state of Baden-Württemberg, even though the discovery had been kept a secret until now.

Another archaeologist, Paul Mellars of the University of Cambridge, in England, agreed and went on to remark on the obvious. By modern standards, he said, the figurine’s blatant sexuality “could be seen as bordering on the (film-za-odrasle)-ographic.”

The tiny statuette was uncovered in September in a cave in southwestern Germany, near Ulm and the Danube headwaters. Dr. Conard’s report on the find is being published Thursday in the journal Nature.

The discovery, Dr. Conard wrote, “radically changes our view of the origins of Paleolithic art.” Before this, he noted, female imagery was unknown, most carvings and cave drawings being of mammoths, horses and other animals.

Scholars say the figurine is roughly contemporaneous with other early expressions of artistic creativity, like drawings on cave walls in southeastern France and northern Italy. The inspiration and symbolism behind the rather sudden flowering have long been debated by art historians.
