    Abstract:
    The following article describes a new opinion on explaining the Prehistoric Venus figurines. Main idea behind the document was to stir some discussion on looking at those figurines from a very different point of view. The author genuinely believes that this view represents a very strong contender for a highly plausible explanation. Since their discovery, the pre-historic Venus figurines had been subjected to much scrutiny and the theories to explain their existence abound. Present article is an attempt to provide another viewpoint that cannot be easily ignored. The idea reintroduced here is that these figurines are the representations of personage or personages related to the girls at puberty. The supporting arguments are provided from various angles including ethnographic studies.
