3D model description

The Venus of Lespugue figurine was discovered in 1922 in the Rideaux cave of Lespugue in the foothills of the Pyrenees by René de Saint-Périer (1877-1950).

Approximately 6 inches (150 mm) tall, it is carved from tusk ivory, and was damaged during excavation. Of all the steatopygous Venus figurines discovered from the upper Paleolithic, the Venus of Lespugue, if the reconstruction is sound, appears to display the most exaggerated female secondary sexual characteristics, especially the extremely large, pendulous breasts. It also shows the first known example of spun thread, as she has a twisted fiber skirt around her waist

This is a RECONSTRUCTED replication of the original figurine, with breasts and buttocks repaired from excavation damage, and originally dated to 26,000 to 24,000 BCE, which places it in upper Paleolithic times. This is the figurine that you see most museums display.

The Venus of Lespugue (original and reconstruction) resides in France, at the Musée de l'Homme.

This STL was made from a high resolution scan of the original cast of this ancient figurine, while it was being exhibited in the Czech Republic in the 1980's. I spent two years tracking down these casts and making these scans using the latest high resolution (<25 microns) scanner and this is the most accurate and VIRTUALLY ONLY museum quality exact recreation of the original Venus figurine you can find.
