Gumby’s mom found in Czech Republic

Her name is Johanka and she’s 7000 years old. Archaeologists digging in the southern Czech Republic uncovered her in the same area they found another similar statuette lest summer.

The woman’s statue found in the area last summer was given the name “Hedvika of Masovice,” while “her sister” is called Johanka, “according to the female names in the calendar on the days when the artifacts were found, head of the archaeological research Zdenek Cizmar said.

“Though the statues come from the same period, each of them is different and exceptional,” Cizmar said.

They’re most like fertility symbols, although Johanka’s boobies seem to me a bit small for that job.

Srsly, Gumby’s mom, am I right?

It’s a hard habit to break.

Did they come in contact with the Chinese? They must have come in contact with the Chinese. There is a yin-yang on Gumby’s mom’s belly. Gumby must be part Chinese! :eek:

Ah, the things I learn from this blog…. :chicken:
