A Tale of Two Venuses


While I’m not Tess Faraday, I can see beauty standards change. The earliest Old European art depicted some burly animals and decidedly fat women. There was snake and beast cults with heavy emphasis on fertility in those days, it seems. Probably still would if not for the arrival of the New Europeans , who brought a lithe and streamlined new traditions with heavy emphasis on warfare and philosophy.

The fat Venus is based on the Lausel find. The thin Venus is based on Greek statues.

This drawing began as gym doodles which I may upload.

This was done in ink on drawing paper. It became the base for an article I wrote.
