Prehistoric Women had a Passion for Beauty
Don’t you just love finding out that our little compulsion to be beautiful is passed down from our great, great, great, great….keep on going……great Grandmother’s? I find great comfort from the fact that women for ages have expressed themselves through the art form of fashion and beauty!
In the article, “Prehistoric Women Had a Passion for Fashion,” archaeologists uncovered artifacts from a Neolithic settlement that is now southern Serbia.
According to the figurines we found, young women were beautifully dressed, like today’s girls in short tops and mini skirts, and wore bracelets around their arms,” said archaeologist Julka Kuzmanovic-Cvetkovic.The unnamed tribe who lived between 5400 and 4700 BC in the 120-hectare site at what is now Plocnik knew about trade, handcrafts, art and metallurgy. Near the settlement, a thermal well might be evidence of Europe’s oldest spa.They pursued beauty and produced 60 different forms of wonderful pottery and figurines, not only to represent deities, but also out of pure enjoyment,” said Kuzmanovic.
So, the next time you are feeling the need to buy a new handbag, cosmetic, or piece of jewelery, blame your heritage! We humans have a need to express ourselves this way. Let’s hear it for the cave woman in all of us! ARGGG!
