Fertility goddesses from the Paleolithic era have long been a source of mystery. These statues, referred to as Venus because they are all obese Paleolithic women, originally appeared around 30,000 years ago. Nobody, it seems, knows why they were created and what they represent. Nor does anyone know why they have enormous bellies, protruding pubic areas, thunderous thighs and, most mysteriously of all, no faces or feet.
This abundance of pre-historic figurines obviously held some significance for their makers, but we don’t know if they were worshipped, kept as pretty trinkets or whether our ancestors simply had a fetish for big, feetless, faceless women.
However, an alternative theory based on reincarnation and Kim Kardashian’s impressive butt may hold the key.
Kim Kardashian is one of the most famous women in the world. The public’s interest in the life of a reality TV star, mother, wife, and woman with such an impressive derriere that she ‘threatened to break the internet’ has reached a frenzy.
Kardashian’s image floods the media and with internet access can be viewed anywhere in the world.
Imagine, then, if our far-future descendants stumbled upon a collection of perfectly preserved tabloid magazines featuring Kim Kardashian. Her small face, large bust and enormous butt — attached to short legs tottering upon two-inch, feet-destroying stiletto heels — may well lead them to conclude that she was an important cultural icon worshipped by the masses.
Which she sort of is.
It is frightening to think that Kim Kardashian is a modern Paleolithic Venus.
Those prehistoric figurines, endlessly studied by archaeologists, scientists and academics, may be little more than our ancestors’ fascination with big-arsed women.
