Happy Discovery Day Dear Venus!

This rather voluptuous lady - the so-called Venus of Willendorf - was unearthed 100 years ago today in the small town of Willendorf in Austria. Its believed that she was carved over 25,000 years ago and to mark the occasion of her discovery Austria is going all out.
Venus of Willendorf
The Internet is filled with articles concerning her history so I won't bother you with my take on it; other than to observe that Rubenesque is not a new look.

21 agosto - San Pio X Papa
