Noting that it was the third cave excavation of Turkey, Erek said that the clay mother goddess figurine they found was 16,000 years old. Erek said that the figurine showed that the social status of women was very important 16,000 years ago.
He noted that the oldest fired clay god or goddess figurines – unearthed in Mesopotamia, Anatolia and Near East – were made in 5,000 BC.
