“Beefy Gals” / Our Ancestors

Venus through time: all but one are physically viable women, except Barbie, who is an anatomical monstrosity.

Venus through time: All the depictions are physically viable women, except Barbie, who is an anatomical monstrosity. What does this say about socially modern culture?

 

Another version.

Sex goddess Marilyn Monroe is now hopelessly “fat” according to high fashion standards.

Modern humans often view upper paleolithic (approx. 25,000 y.a.) “Venus figurines” as fertility goddesses, due to “exaggerated” body parts, but they may portray specific females. At this time there were no light-skinned Homo sapiens, or blue-eyed blonds – another 15-20,000 years would pass before these changes would appear in Eurasia.

Photo below: Last of the Andaman Islanders, who migrated from Africa 60-100,000 y.a. (debated?) to islands off the Indian mainland. A “living Venus” … Archaeologists have tried to “explain away” features on these figurines, such as wooly or coiled hair as “hats” or headdresses – really?

Andaman islanders (had) a culture that extended back to 60,000 years ago.

Andaman Island culture (early OOA migration) was uninterrupted until humans arrived from mainland India 4,000 y.a. Is this couple a good approximation for the first migratory H. sapiens?
