I love the Willendorf Venus. When I was working and my hair was tightly permed, I looked just like her (except that I have feet). I have a refrigerator magnet of her which I treasure. Jamie, she is all of us. She has the face of all of us, which is why it is blank in the carving. Fill in your own.

Thanks. My original post was more interesting (at least to me), but got lost.

So, again, thanks.

I LOVE Joanne's answer.
