Genetic disc found in Columbia. made out of a Lydite, an exceptionally hard stone. Estimated to be at least 6000 years old. The disc shows the stages of reproduction from sperm (that we can only see today with a microscope) through to stages of foetal development. It would be near impossible to carve this material today because of its properties but this disc looks like it has been shaped in the same manner as clay.

Catal Huyuk - leopard enthroned goddess
seated woman of catalhoyuk. 6000 BC. Associated with other mother goddess figures, her iconography is similar to that of Cybele in later religions. Baked clay.
Çatal Höyük: Mother goddess.
Individual human brain has to explain a phenomenon in order to comprehend and relate to it. This activity predates by far the emergence of language and may have caused it. The theory is, belief in the supernatural emerges from hypotheses arbitrarily assumed by individuals to explain natural phenomena that cannot be explained otherwise. The resulting need to share individual hypotheses with others leads eventually to collective religious belief. A socially accepted hypothesis becomes dogma
The Seated Woman of Çatal Hüyük (also Çatalhöyük) is a baked-clay, nude female form, flanked on either side with a leopard, which is generally conceded to depict a corpulent and fertile Mother Goddess in the process of giving birth while seated on her throne, which has two hand rests in the form of feline (leopard or panther) heads.
Seated Mother Goddess flanked by two felines from Çatalhöyük, Turkey, Neolithic age (about 6000-5500 BCE), today in Museum of Anatolian Civilizations in Ankara, Turkey.

DOLNÍ VĚSTONICE ca 29 000and 25 000 BP. This item is listed in pretty much all the books I've read as a variation on a venus figurine. The nodules are supposed to represent breasts. But I've never agreed with this interpretation - I just can't look at the without seeing a penis. I'll try to find pics of it from other angles - it's angled along the shaft, and it makes the penis resemblance even more striking.
