Paleolithic Ritual Objects: Case Study of Female Figurines

By: Shahin Khani, 2001

”Homo Sapiens” first appeared during the neo-Paleolithic period; and so did religion and art for the first time, even though they had their unconscious roots in earlier times. Objects from this period reveal humans’ religious beliefs and traditions.

They are the oldest cultural artifacts belonging to humans, including wall paintings in caves, figurines and bas-reliefs of women and animals. Female figurines dating from about 25,000 BC are some of the most important artifacts, revealing the important role of woman s mother, creator and the basis of the family.
