Paleolithic Art

Just learned something interesting in my art history course.
Women were being depicted nude, often with exaggerated breasts, hips and abdomens, in painting and sculpture as early as the Paleolithic period (i.e. 30,000 years ago).
It's amazing that the fascination with and appreciation for the female form and fertility is so deeply rooted in the human psyche.
"The genius of woman," a wise person has said, "is her natural receptivity to life, which is revealed in the very structure of her body."
