Details

In the evening of August 6, 1908, Josef Szombathy boarded a boat from Vienna to Aggsbach to take a carriage to Willendorf on the following day, without suspecting for one minute that he was about to make one of the greatest archaeological finds in human history – the Venus of Willendorf. This book was published on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of its discovery. Created 25,000 years ago, it is one of the most famous female figures in the history of mankind. Through his camera, Lois Lammerhuber offers the beholder a close look never seen before: Venus from all sides, with a wealth of details, down to the tiniest pore of the stone. The Venus experts of the Vienna Natural History Museum, Walpurga Antl-Weiser and Anton Kern, provide with their essays insight into the world of the Stone Age.
