Thousands of years before god created the universe.. humans created female genitalia art 🙂

Newly discovered circular carvings that are mostly likely meant to represent female genitalia have been recorded as the oldest rock art ever found in Europe.

The carvings, resembling the vulva, were uncovered at a site called Abri Castanet in France. They are believed to be about 37,000-years-old.
