"A woman of strong purpose passed through this section, and everything else tried to follow." Judy Grahn
Venus of Laussel, France 25,000 BCE pictured here is a limestone bas-relief of a strong ancient woman making the connection
between the 13 lunar cycles of the year and her 13 synchronistic menstrual cycles.
She is painted with red ochre and holding a crescent moon-shaped horn with 13 marks in her right hand,
and pointing to her womb with her left hand.
