    Modigliani Seated Female Nude Sculpture (1913-1915)

    Palaeolithic Woman of Willenorf. Made out of limestone, it fits in the palm of a hand. It is one of the most obese representations of the Paleolithic statuary. She represents the Earth and its fertility and continuation of life, the Mother Goddess, the universal female principle. Women were recognized as life-givers and sustainers. They were revered as priestesses. The vast majority (over 90%) of human images from 30,000 to 5,000 b.c. are female.
