Hi Valene,

I agree with you – we weren’t alive then, so there’s no way to know for sure! I agree that the sculptures depicting females, for example, Woman of Willendorf, may have been created with an ideal specimen in mind. I also think that the abstractness that some of the art does display is likely from the tools they had at their disposal to create these works.
