Venus of Willendorf
World’s Oldest Goddess Symbol
The Venus of Willendorf, or Goddess of Willendorf, is considered to be the world’s oldest goddess statue, with an approximate age of 35,000 years. This beautiful pendant features a replica of the Venus of Willendorf figurine, as well as genuine hematite.
From our Stone Deity line of pendants, the jewelry pendant figure “melts” onto the stone, forming icicle-like prongs to hold the stone in place.
The Venus of Willendorf is believed to be an ancient fertility symbol and a symbol of the power of the eternal feminine. As a side note–the figure in the background to the right of the pendant is Tara, The Star, an important figure in the Tibetan pantheon, and the protectress goddess of Tibet.
