Venus von Willendorf, one of the most famous archaeological finds in Austria, created around 25,000 B.C. Found on August 7, 1908 during the excavation of palaeolithic remains of a settlement at Willendorf in the Wachau region. Made of limestone, 11 cm high sculpture in the round of an obese, nude woman, face-less head with parallel rows of curls, jagged bracelets on the wrists, originally covered with a thick layer of red colour. At the same place the possibly unfinished figurine of a woman with a height of 22.5 cm, and an oval body with a height of 9 cm, both made from the tusk of a mammoth, were found ("Venus II and III").
