Austria, 25,000bp

http://www.ancientcraft.co.uk/reenactment/pa_venus_willendorf.html

The Venus of Willendorf was one of three such figurines recovered from Palaeolithic archaeological sites at Willendorf in Austria, which were temporary settlements of the Gravettian culture. A characteristic of the Paleolithic “Venus” figurines exhibited by the Willendorf figurine is the lack of any detail of a face and the lack of feet below the ankle.
