The statue of fire clay was discovered by Karel Absolon in 1925 in the centre of a big ash field in a mammoth hunters’ settlement between today’s Pavlov and Doní Věstonice. The statue of Venus has made this site famous far beyond the borders of Europe. A replica of the Venus and many other archaeological findings are housed in the archaeological museum in Dolní Věstonice. The original is in the Moravian Museum in Brno.
