The Artist’s Eye: Figurines of the Paleolithic

Sponsored by: Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History

The Artist’s Eye: Figurines of the Paleolithic is an art exhibition featuring sculptures by Cornelia Kubler Kavanagh that pay homage to some of the first three-dimensional representations of the female form ever discovered: figures created by Upper Paleolithic hunters and gatherers between 40,000 and 15,000 BCE.
Over 200 of these figures were discovered, some in association with weaponry, jewelry, and animal remains at archaeological sites from southwestern France to Siberia. Most were found in farmers’ fields or in early excavations when archaeological methods were imprecise and less sophisticated than today.
