This 6,000 year old figurine was found by the banks of Somme. The figurine depicts a woman and has taken on the name of "Lady of Villers-Carbonne". Some Neolithic experts guess that it is a figurine of a fertility goddess. The find was rare since most Neolithic findings have been found in Southern Europe while this was discovered in Northern Europe.
