Venus of Willendorf, also known as the Woman of Willendorf, is an 11.1 cm (4 3/8 inches) high statuette of a female figure. It was discovered in 1908 by archaeologist Josef Szombathy at a paleolithic site near Willendorf, a village in Lower Austria near the city of Krems. It is carved from an oolitic limestone that is not local to the area, and tinted with red ochre. It has been estimated to have been carved 24,000–22,000BC. Very little is known about its origin, method of creation, or cultural significance.

Our impression of this unique statue is 6" tall and is a greatly detailed copy of the original Venus.
