To us, the use of form as an adaptation rather than a representation of reality
at this initial stage of art is of special interest.
For example, note that the head of the Dolni Vestonice figurine is apparently a
penis ! (It does not show well in the rather poor photo).
Many of the females are obviously pregnant.
Most modern interpretations emphasize a religious function, butI think that much of this work was made with great patience and love, and a pride in skill and accomplishment, with other words for the same reasons as to why most art is currently produced.
