For sale, from the top drawer of my personal fieldwalking collection, is this large highly stylised Venus figurine. This Lalinde-Gönnersdorf venus figurine has been made on a contrasting flint nodule. It is remarkably similar to two other bone versions found in the Ukraine. The stick like figure has undergone very simple working to the head and feet area only.The cortex is covered in fossilised cretaceous coral, it’s possible that this was viewed to it’s creator as geometric like tattoos. Britain 14,000 years ago was still a peninsular of Continental Europe, migrating animals were probably followed and hunted by the nomadic peoples of Europe. It is possible that these nomadic people rested in North Kent, perhaps to replenish their flint tool kits after following and hunting such animals as horse and reindeer. Whilst in the process of sourcing and making flint tools, they also came across these naturally occurring female looking flint nodules. It is possible that these small portable flint nodules became a prized item for the hunter gatherers.They were then taken back to their open air camps and rock shelters in the East.These figure like nodules were then reproduced on workable material such as bone, antler, sandstone and jet, only Venuses found in Wylczse, Poland are they also made on flint and are generally of plaquette types.

The area where this nodule figurine was found has been subjected to a great deal of construction activity. This includes road and railway building, it is likely that it was disturbed through these activities, it was found in spoil from these worked sites.
