Motif persistence and transition from Low Paleolithic to early Upper Paleolithic observed by Jan van Es

From Jan van Es, The Netherlands
"At the right of the photo the well-known corpulent Venus of Willendorff; 29.000 BC.  

At the left the Low Paleo, strong patinated face/Venus (Beegden, The Netherlands). It's a find of 1981 and I found it together with Low Paleo artifacts (350.000-450.000 BC).
"The man's face is also representing a skull with gaunt eyes and an open mouth spitting out an egg."
