The Oldest Austrian?

Scary photo at link.

BBC NEWS | Europe | Vienna celebrates Venus centenary: "Austrians are celebrating 100 years since the discovery of a tiny but curvy statuette that dates back 25,000 years.

The 11cm-tall (four-inch) stone figure - the Venus of Willendorf - will be in a special show at Vienna's Natural History Museum with similar statuettes.

Austria's post office is also to unveil a stamp in her honour on Friday, the Associated Press reports."

She has a very fancy hairdo, kind of reminds me of an acorn.
