Re: Venus(es) for Vulcans.

well, it's been a loooong time.("Gyn-Ecology- the Meta-ethics of Radical Feminism" by Mary Daly was required reading:), ever read it?) But it was the consensus that the Venus of W was an idealized representation. Compare the Venus of W with some other fertility statues, though. Sure, the figures can be abstracted, but no others that I have found are abstracted in that way. USUALLY breasts and hips are accentuated, symbols of a fertile woman, ready to reproduce...rather than already being preggers. Victorian moral art? OMG. And that's when women went to the doc for treatment of hysteria as well. What a skewed time. CUTE tea-party stuff, though!
