Signs in fingerlings

When slicing fingerling potatoes the other day I was struck by the symbolism.

Before you guys flag this for inappropriateness, pause to compare the potatoes to the first image I saw in my first art history class.

The Venus von Willendorf, Vienna

Art historians, back me up on this?  Someone needs to write a dissertation on the similarities between prehistoric art and potatoes.
