HERA - this piece is all about love...

HERA is our interpretation of the Venus of Willendorf figurine, handcarved in Woolly Mammoth Tusk.

The Mammoth Tusk used for this piece is CERTIFIED 34,690 YEARS OLD (+/- 815 years). 

We had our mammoth material carbon dated to get an accurate measure of its age. The testing was done for us by GNS Science, a New Zealand Crown Research Institute and New Zealand's leading provider of Earth, geoscience and isotope research - so their assessment of this material is as accurate as is possible using radiocarbon dating technology.  

This piece has rounded, soft curves in the front face and a curved, beautifully carved back - you can clearly see the form in the video.

The original Venus of Willendorf was discovered in Austria and is believed to have been carved around 30,000 BCE. Although there is no definitive understanding of the meaning of the original figurine, the exaggeration of the parts of her body associated with fertility and child-bearing suggest that she may have been associated with fertility rituals.
