One more for the Clothing Optional show at Marco Fuoco Gallery

I had to do one more. She really I think was the inspiration for this whole series, so she couldn't be left out. The Venus of Willendorf. 16x20 gallery wrap canvas.
She is a statuette of a female figure estimated to have been made between 24,000 BCE – 22,000 BCE, discovered in 1908 by archaeologist Josef Szombathy at a paleolithic site near Willendorf, a village in Lower Austria near the city of Krems.
I just love her, she is very powerful... this is my interpretation of her, I hope I did her justice!
