The Venus of Willendorf (Woman of Willendorf) is a 4.4 inch tall limestone female statue dating from the upper Paleolithic era. The statue was discovered in 1908 during archeological excavations near the town of Willendorf in the Wachau Valley of the Danube River in Austria. The statue is now on display at Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna. Traces of Red Ochre paint are still visible on the figure. This figure is thought to date between 22,000 and 28,000 BCE. Similar figures have been discovered across a 15,000 year time span in Europe.
