This stylized, almost abstract female figurine is called the prehistoric goddess Venus of Lespugue (ca 20,000-18,000 BC). Here she is reproduced as a pendant on a necklace.

The Mother Goddess Figurine was found in the cave of Rideaux near Lespugue in the Haute-Garonne at the bottom of the Pyrenees in 1922. The true meaning of the Venus figurines is unknown. It is likely that in the hunter and collector society of those days, their corpulence stood for prosperity and fertility and as such she is mother goddess or earth goddess. She symbolizes the nurturing and support that mother-hood creates. She is fat, showing her abundant life-energy. To many, she is the symbol of life itself, and the creative side of womanhood.

Pendant necklaces come on legend cards with a 33" long cord. Pendant is made from fine pewter.
