It is dated to between 35,000 and 40,000 years ago, belonging to the early Aurignacian, at the very beginning of the Upper Paleolithic, which is associated with the assumed earliest presence of Homo sapiens in Europe (Cro-Magnon). It is the oldest undisputed example of Upper Paleolithic art and figurative prehistoric art in general. In 2011, the figure is still being researched in the University of Tübingen, though there are plans to house it and other discoveries from the region in a planned new museum in Swabia.[1] Contents 1 Context2 Discovery3 Description4 See also5 Notes and references6 Further reading7 External links Context The Swabian Alb region has a number of caves that have yielded mammoth-i v o r y artifacts of the Upper Paleolithic period, totaling about twenty-five items to date. These include the lion-headed figure of Hohlenstein-Stadel and an i v o r y flute found at Geißenklösterle, dated to 36,000 years ago.[2] This concentration of evidence of full behavioral modernity in the period of 40 to 30 thousand years ago, including figurative art and instrumental music, is unique worldwide and Conard speculates that the bearers of the Aurignacian culture in the Swabian Alb may be credited with the invention, not just of figurative art and music, but possibly, early religion as well.[3][4] In a distance of 70 cm to the Venus figurine Conard's team found a flute made from a vulture bone.[5] Additional artifacts excavated from the same cave layer included flint-knapping debris, worked bone, and carved i v o r y as well as remains of tarpans, reindeer, cave bears, woolly mammoths, and Alpine Ibexes.[4] Discovery External video Prehistoric pin-up, Nature[6] The discovery of the Venus of Hohle Fels pushes back the date of the oldest prehistoric sculpture, and arguably the oldest known figurative art altogether,[7] by several millennia,[8] establishing that works of art were being produced throughout the Aurignacian Period.[9] The figurine was discovered in September 2008 in a cave called Hohle Fels (Swabian German for "hollow rock") near Schelklingen, some 15 km (9 mi) west of Ulm, Baden-Württemberg, in southwestern Germany, by a team from the University of Tübingen led by archaeology professor Nicholas Conard, who reported their find in Nature.[10] The figurine was found in the cave hall, about 20 m (66 ft) from the entrance and about 3 m (10 ft) below the current ground level. Also found in the cave was a bone flute dating to approximately 35,000 years ago, the oldest known musical instrument.[11] Description The figurine was sculpted from a woolly mammoth tusk and had broken into fragments, of which six have been recovered, with the left arm and shoulder still missing. In place of the head, the figurine — which probably took "tens if not hundreds of hours" to carve [4] — has a perforated protrusion, which may have allowed its owner to wear it as an amulet.
