The statue of pregnant women in pottery is unearthed in 1982. It was a pottery sculpture around 3500 BC. With a height of 5-6.8 cm, this statuary statue focuses on the female characteristics with special meaning. The sculptor polishes the sculpture smoothly, the head and arms are incomplete, the lower part of the body abdomen, buttocks, thighs and other female characteristics. The statue is plump and single handed. It seems to imply that people in those days regarded the earth as a mother, a magic mantle that gave birth to all things and grain, and prayed for a bumper harvest in agriculture.

The statue of pregnant woman was first discovered in the Orient, and was known as "Oriental Venus" by scholars.
