Prehistoric Venus

The earliest works of art that we have ever found

These figurines of women,

From the icy air of the Old Stone Age

They emerge

Pendulous breasted,

Rotund bellies and great hips and thighs

 

Ballerina like

They stand erect in space with their hands clasped

Neatly before them, hugging the body

As if ready for service to mankind

 

But it is their small heads

Some with eyes

Of empty space

That bow melting

Into the flower of being alive

Like bees

 

Burrowing into the consciousness

Of someone else

To become them

O Queen

 

Figurines of three women

Venus Figures

And here is a link to suggest what the mysterious figures may have been about…

And just for fun:

Woman at the beach

Lady at the Beach
