3D model description
The Venus of Willendorf, now known in academia as the Woman of Willendorf, is a 11.1-centimetre (4.4 in) high statuette of a female figure estimated to have been made between about 28,000 and 25,000 BCE. It was found in 1908 by a workman named Johann Veran or Josef Veram during excavations conducted by archaeologists Josef Szombathy, Hugo Obermaier and Josef Bayer at a paleolithic site near Willendorf, a village in Lower Austria near the town of Krems. It is carved from an oolitic limestone that is not local to the area, and tinted with red ochre. The figurine is now in the Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna, Austria.
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. I spent two years tracking down and making these scans and this is the most accurate recreation of the original Venus figurine you can find. For comparison, the last photo shows my exact replica (left) against a popular STL downloaded online (right).
