According to scientists who've spent way too much time in the dark studying cave art and not nearly enough time looking at privates, this is the world's oldest known artistic etching. One of a vagina. Personally, I don't see it, and that's saying a lot because I can usually find privates in anything. One time I went cloud-watching and counted OVER 9,000.
The new discovery, uncovered at a site called Abri Castanet in France, consists mainly of circular carvings most likely meant to represent the vulva. The carvings were etched into the ceiling of a now-collapsed rock shelter about 37,000 years ago, researchers reported Monday (May 14) in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Female genitalia, please, it sounds like you've never seen a naked lady before. Granted I'm no expert on the subject and can only speak from my limited viewing of scrambled Cinemax movies, but that is not a vagina. It looks like an upside-down power symbol. "From 37,000 year ago?" *wink* "Why are you winking at me?" *wink* "Stop it." Aliens, bro. Meet me after dark and I'll tell you everything they did to me.
Thanks to Joey and lovehandles, who weren't surprised at all to discover the first thing a human drew was a vagina. Really? I thought it would have been a wiener. They're so weird but so fun to doodle!
