Someone pointed out (on Tumblr of all places) that the anatomy of the various Mother Goddess statuettes make perfect sense if you are a woman looking down at her own body and using it as a model.
When I lived in Mexico, I saw unknown amounts of anonymous ecclesial art that was known to have been created by nuns.
Now it also may be that the cave paintings of Lascaux were done by women, because the shape of the handprints are indicative of female hands.
Our ancestresses silently, deliberately, emerge, and they were artists.
