Stone Age erotic art found in German cave

12,000-year-old rock art has been found in a cave in Germany, making it the first Stone Age artwork ever found in the country.

“They include schematic depictions of women’s bodies and unidentifiable symbols, among other things,” she said.

The ancient artists appear to have taken their inspiration for the erotic images from rock formations in the caves resembling breasts and penises and then carved the images in the walls of the cave, Zarges said.

Die Zeit quoted geologist and archaeologist Bernhard Haeck, a member of the discovery team, as saying that the five-metre-long chamber in the cave may have been used for fertility rituals.
