From wikipedia: the most famous [stone age] piece is the Venus of Willendorf, which was found in the territory of today's Austria. This type of sculpture was excavated in numerous places from France to Siberia, and was therefore typical of the stone age culture. Scientists however concluded that the average stone age women did not have the possibility to gain so much weight. Also, none of the few paleolithic male figurines in sculpture or painting were corpulent. Possible explanations scientists have for this discrepancy are that these female statuettes were either goddesses (some sort of "Earth Mother") or they were part of a rich social class, possibly in a matriarchic society. Some have also theorized that this was the most exaggerated ideal of beauty, as Barbie dolls exhibit anatomically improbable slenderness.

Today's fragrance: Serge Lutens' Santal Blanc with notes per Bela: sandalwood, cinnamon bark, fenugreek, Copahu balsam, jasmine, Siamese benzoin, iris, pink pepper, musk. Interesting how quickly I get the cinnamon and pepper ... it's a hot fragrance. Must go look up fenugreek. *edit* Per clearing, fenugreek is "a mildly spiced dust" which can also be used (according to herbal lore) to dry up mucus. Noted that this was a compound c used in capsules to treat her children's colds* *additional edit per victoriaf: fenugreek "is a spice used in Indian and Middle Eastern cooking. It has a very particular scent--bitter, slightly pungent and a little bit sweet."
