Moravia?; Late Paleolithic; Gravettien-Solutréen; 20 000-15 000 BC; Style III
This statuette is one of many made in the vast geographical area stretching from the Pyrenees and the Apennine peninsula across Moravia and Ukraine to Siberia. A distinctive scheme can be noticed: a stylized disproportionate body, a small head "without a face" or, as in our example, with undefined features, short arms crossed under the flat, pendulant breasts, steatopigous bottom, a curved back, emphasis on stomach and genitals, fat legs pressed tightly together.
The lines of the face and use of deep incisions to separate the head from the strong shoulders suggest that it was made in Moravia.
