Dogu Figurine, known as the ‘Jomon Venus’ from the Middle Jomon period, 3000–2000 BCE. Excavated from Tanabatake site in Chino, Nagano National Treasure Chino city (housed at Togariishi Museum of Jomon Archaeology) in Nagano, Japan. In contrast to the noble facial features, the softly swelling curvaceous beauty of the belly and buttocks of the figure convey a sense of maternity.” (See this link for more: http://www.tnm.jp/modules/r_free_page/index.php?id=1648&lang=en)
