Lego Cavegirl

Lego was absolutely Agent Triple P's favourite toy when he was small and we built all sorts of wonderful worlds with it.  The proliferation of models which just build up into one thing these days seems to go against the idea behind it.  When Triple P was small there were no Lego people.  Today the strangely yellow-faced Lego people have now even spawned limited edition character figures from other manufaturers.  This Lego cavegirl, however, is an official figure and we are delighted to have her on the blog!

She is armed with a club, which is no doubt due to the Danes famous equal opportunities culture, as everyone knows that prehistoric clubs were only for cavemen and were used for bopping cavegirls over the head before dragging them back by their hair to their cave.

Cavegirl Art 24: The trials of a Cavegirl by Milo Manara

Italian artist Milo Manara's book Bolero takes a look at the history of mankind through the medium of strips of figures in the costumes of history.  Including many figures in military dress and some violent and bloody vignettes there is also a healthy smattering of copulating figures as humankind progresses from prehistoric times to the year 2000.  In fact, the message of the book seems to be that humans haven't progressed at all and are still obsessed with fighting and sex.

The book begins with this sequence where a lovely cavegirl is molested by an excited Neanderthal.  His expectations are disappointed when a Cro-Magnon smashes his brains out with that prototypical caveman weapon, a wooden club.  No respite for the cavegirl, however, as our more evolved ancestor flings her to the ground and takes her from behind resulting in a cave baby.

In reality, of course, there is some evidence for cross breeding (although, as ever, academics don't agree) between Neanderthals and modern man, in their joint Eurasian habitat, resulting in, for example, some genetic differences between Europeans and Asians and sub-Saharan Africans; the latter having less Neanderthal DNA.

Cavegirl: Brigitte Bardot

A great find by Mikey, on his Shanna the She-Devil blog, is this splendid shot of Brigitte Bardot, which we hadn't seen before.  Bardot, in leopard print, tied up.  Splendid!

Although she is more of a jungle girl this picture from the same shoot is particularly cave girl-like as well.  Agent Triple P once spent a couple of days in a yacht moored off Bardot's beach-side house in St Tropez. All you could hear was the barking of what sounded like dozens of dogs in kennels in her garden.

This is from a different shoot but her leafy headdress and primitive beads turn her into the sort of cavegirl you would very much like to have out gathering a few berries for you while you cook some mammoth steak,
