The Venus of Lespugue is a Venus figurine, a statuette of a nude female figure from approximately 25,000 BC. It was discovered in 1922 in the Rideaux cave of Lespugue (Haute-Garonne) in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Approximately 6 inches (147 mm) tall, it is carved from tusk ivory, and was damaged during excavation.
