"The Venus Britannia. 400,000 B.C." demonstrates potential age of art traditions found in North America


"HERE FOR THE FIRST TIME WE INTRODUCE 400,000 YEAR OLD FIGURINES DISCOVERED IN BRITAIN BY FAMOUS ARCHAEOLOGISTS. THEY ARE HOUSED IN THE BRITISH MUSEUM AND PREVIOUSLY IN ROCHESTER MUSEUM, KENT. THE ARTEFACTS CONTAIN HOMININ FACES, MOTHER GODDESS FIGURINES AND CARVINGS OF ANIMALS, SOME OF WHICH ARE NOW EXTINCT.

THIS BOOK EXPLORES THE FIGURINES FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE MOTHER GODDESS AND SHAMANISM. THROUGH THESE THEY REVEAL THAT IN THE DISTANT PAST BEFORE MODERN HUMANS EVOLVED, THE HOMININ HEIDELBERGENSIS HAD A RELIGIOUS UNDERSTANDING OF AN ALL POWERFUL MOTHER GODDESS AND THAT THIS KNOWLEDGE WAS MANIFESTED IN A FORM OF SHAMANIC WORSHIP AS STILL PRACTICED BY INDIGENOUS POPULATIONS AROUND THE GLOBE TODAY. HOMININ RELIGIOUS PRACTICE IS COMPARED WITH A PARTICULAR STUDY OF THE ANCIENT WAYS OF SIBERIAN SHAMANISM AND ITS USE OF TOTEM ANIMALS.

THE FIGURINES ARE ARTISTICALLY CRAFTED TO A HIGHER STANDARD THAN STONE AGE HUMAN ART AND REVEAL THAT HEIDELBERGENSIS WAS AS INTELLECTUALLY AND MORE ARTISTICALLY EVOLVED THAN EARLY HUMAN POPULATIONS."

The book by Shaman had a couple of pictures of iconic flints which reminded me of finds made by North American amateur archaeologists such as the "combination figure stone" below from the David Boies Collection. The question here for Archaeology: are the North American art similarities because of a shared art tradition with the "Old World" or an independent convergence?

"There are people: Greg Reeder, Jan van Es, Jimmy Groen, Ken Johnston, Alan Day and Don Hitchcock who are actively involved in the study of Paleolithic art. However, there are few others if any who understand the full intricacies that British Lower Palaeolithic combination art from as far back as 400,000 years ago involves..." - J.D. Shaman
