Who in the World is Hieronymus Bosch?

AN EXPLORATION OF ART HISTORY

AP Art History Shenanigans: The Divas of Willendorf

One day in our Art History class, we were asked by Mrs. Medsker to create our favorite Prehistoric piece of art. All five of us chose to create our version of the Venus of Willendorf. We all liked this little sculpture because the proportions were pretty funny. None of us believed that the typical prehistoric woman had the proportions of the sculpture however; it was interesting what an ancient society perceived as beautiful because these perceptions are so different from today.

Clearly the sculptures came out pretty funky looking, mostly because most of us don’t consider ourselves artists. We decided to refer to the five sculptures as the “Divas of Willendorf”, rather than the “Venus of Willendorf”, and created a sort of clan of ladies. After firing our first pieces of Art History Art, Mrs. Medsker additionally gifted us with keychains of the Venus as a good luck charm, which the class all took to the AP exam. Or at least we did.

Above is a picture of the “Divas of Willendorf.”
