The Woman of Willendorf, formerly called Venus of Willendorf, is the name given to a small statue found in 1908. The statue takes its name from the small Austrian village, Willendorf, near where it was found. The original is estimated to have been created between 25,000 and 30,000 years ago. It has been suggested that She is a fertility figure, a good-luck totem, a mother goddess symbol.
