This is the oldest piece in the Louvre. It’s 9000 years old. What I like about these really old pieces is how little context they need to be enjoyed. Contemporary art NEEDS context. Yet reading about the digs after seeing the statue didn’t change my perception of them. 887CF5FD-1FE9-42FB-BAA1-57138DAB4946.jpg AC4486CE-30A4-4E6D-AF3B-0F85FD83B4FA.jpg
