Cavemen liked big butts and they cannot lie....

From an article in New Scientist magazine:

Female figurines dating back 15,000 years reveal that the preferred body shape for women was curvy with prominent buttocks.... All of the figurines were headless and had hugely exaggerated buttocks. Perhaps strangely, given their allure today, few of the figures had breasts.

This bottom-heavy shape ties in with northern European stone carvings and cave engravings of women from a similar period.


And it's not just a primitive thing, because I can tell you right now I'm envisioning a future filled with big-bootied spacewomen in fishbowl helmets and silver jumpsuits stretched to the breaking point.
