The Brassempouy Lady was originally made from ivory. It dates back to Gravettian, 23000 B.C. It was discovered in 1894 by Edouard Piette and Joseph de Laporterie in the Grotte du Pape, Brassempouy. Known as "The Lady with the Hood" or "The Lady of Brassempouy", this is the most famous statuette of Paleolithic art because it conveys the most realistic and lively image of Paleolithic art. It is now located in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Musee des Antiquites nationales. Statue measures: 5.25"Hx2.75"Wx2.75"D Head only: 3.75"Hx1.75"Wx2"D Base only: 1.5"Hx2.75"Wx2.75"D


Made of cast stone. Cast stone is a type of gypsum cement whose properties are much different from plaster of paris which is what most sculpture shops use. Unlike plaster, which is soft, light and weak, cast stone is hard, heavy and strong. Cast stone feels like, and is heavy like a real stone would be, which can be experienced as soon you try to lift it.
