Full DescriptionIn the evening of 6 August 1908, Josef Szombathy boarded a boat from Vienna to Aggsbach to take a carriage to Willendorf on the following day. He never suspected for one minute that he was about to make one of the greatest archaeological finds in human history – the Venus of Willendorf. 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 reader a close look never seen before: Venus from all sides, with a wealth of details, down to the tiniest pore of the stone. In their essays, the Venus experts of Vienna’s Natural History Museum, Walpurga Antl-Weiser and Anton Kern, provide a glimpse into the world of the Stone Age period. The hardbound book is in a slipcase with a 3D image of the statue.
