This is so, so amazing. Evidence that statues were basically carved by women as self-portraits. Source: gowns.tumblr.com/post/16712883

@curio yes! I wanted to post it but curse the four-pic limit. :-/

@Jen_Lee This is research from 1997! How did I not know this already?!

@ewankeep @Jen_Lee reminds me of this article (in German) i read the other day: deutschlandfunkkultur.de/gesch

"""Ein Augenöffner war für mich beispielsweise ein Text aus einem Ausstellungskatalog über altsteinzeitliche Kunst. Da konnte man lesen, verfasst von einem Fachkollegen, mit einem ganz selbstverständlichen Duktus: Wie auch heute, so wurde auch damals Kunst von Männern gemacht. Das stand da einfach so."""

@Jen_Lee now this just shows you what happens when women finally get into the boys clubs. Truth!

@Jen_Lee Wow, pretty interesting. It does seem quite plausible.

@Jen_Lee This has been one of my favourite tidbits of knowledge ever since I first read about it! I've never seen the last example either, so thank you for posting!!

@Jen_Lee whoa! where did you find this? I'm mildly mindblown :-)

@daniel_bohrer on the bird site. But that tumblr link has a great writeup!

@Jen_Lee ahh, that was a CW, not the full toot. Thank you for the notice :D

@Jen_Lee very interesting discovery. There are still some unanswered questions in history.

@Jen_Lee

Fascinating hypothesis.
Thank you for sharing.

Do you have a source link available?

mildly nsfw, Paleolithic nudes compared to modern nudes 

@Algot yes. It’s in the tumblr post on the op. 😉

@Jen_Lee Saw this the other day and thought it was one of the coolest concepts for those figurines I'd seen! And it sort of ties in with one of the proposed reasons for large-bodied, short-legged animals in cave paintings - perspective was gained during butchering.

@Entropy_in_Drag I hadn’t head about the last part — how cool!

@Jen_Lee I read it while learning about them as a kid, so I completely forget where I read it. LOL Take it with a huge grain of salt, I guess.

@Jen_Lee this is pretty damn cool!

@Jen_Lee woah That's really interesting
