Photos and/or copies of a hundred Paleolithic statues were observed. The photos were taken on frontal, lateral and back view. Among the 97 female idols studied, 24 were skinny (mainly young ladies); 15 normal weighed, while more than half of them (51) represents overweighed or very obese females, their breasts was also extremely large. The figurine analysis shows various types of obesity. Fat tissue deposition can be seen on the following places: belly only on 2 figurines; belly + hip on 10 statues; belly + gluteal + hip on 14 idols, belly + hip + gluteal+ femora on 24 statuettes and diffuse obesity on one Venus. Steatopygia could be detected on 7 idols, while these females are not particularly overweight and had reasonably thin waist and legs.
