The first ever artwork showing woman giving birth

Archaeologists have discovered two pieces of astonishing art dating back around 2,600 years depicting a goddess giving birth - the oldest such image ever found in the western world.
The artefacts were at the heart of an ancient Etruscan settlement in Italy’s Mugello Valley, near Florence.
The incredible images were on a small fragment from a ceramic vessel dating back to around 600 BC, and show the head and shoulders of a baby emerging from a mother.
