Cavegirl Art 25: The trials of a Cavegirl by Milo Manara




Italian artist Milo Manara's book Bolero takes a look at the history of mankind through the medium of strips of figures in the costumes of history.  Including many figures in military dress and some violent and bloody vignettes there is also a healthy smattering of copulating figures as humankind progresses from prehistoric times to the year 2000.  In fact, the message of the book seems to be that humans haven't progressed at all and are still obsessed with fighting and fucking.




The book begins with this sequence where a lovely cavegirl is molested by an excited Neanderthal.  His expectations are disappointed when a Cro-Magnon smashes his brains out with that prototypical caveman weapon, a wooden club.  No respite for the cavegirl, however, as our more evolved ancestor flings her to the ground and takes her from behind resulting in a cave baby.

In reality, of course, there is some evidence for cross breeding (although, as ever, academics don't agree) between Neanderthals and modern man, in their joint Eurasian habitat, resulting in, for example, some genetic differences between Europeans and Asians and sub-Saharan Africans; the latter having less Neanderthal DNA.

Cavegirl: Brigitte Bardot




A great find by Mikey, on his Shanna the She-Devil blog, is this splendid shot of Brigitte Bardot, which we hadn't seen before.  Bardot, in leopard print, tied up.  Splendid!




Although she is more of a jungle girl this picture from the same shoot is particularly cave girl-like as well.  Agent Triple P once spent a couple of days in a yacht moored off Bardot's beach-side house in St Tropez. All you could hear was the barking of what sounded like dozens of dogs in kennels in her garden.




This is from a different shoot but her leafy headdress and primitive beads turn her into the sort of cavegirl you would very much like to have out gathering a few berries for you while you cook some mammoth steak,

Cavegirl Art 24: Computer Game Cavegirl




We spotted this computer generated cavegirl when she appeared in an online advertisement on a website we were looking at.  She exists to publicise one of those online world builder type strategy games which young people waste so much of their lives on.  We like her outfit and would happily pick berries with her in her prehistoric world.

Cavegirl Art 23: Coppertone Cavegirl by Frank Cho






There is a lot of cavegirl comic book style art out there but we don't feature it that much because most of it isn't very good.  However, we were tickled by Frank Cho's take on the classic Coppertone girl.  His girl has a very un-Stone Age sword as she suffers at the jaws of a couple of small dinosaurs.  So she is either a Lost World cavegirl or a time travelling one.




His picture is, of course, a pastiche of Joyce Ballantyne's classic advertisement for Coppertone from 1959,for which she used her three year old daughter, Cheri, as the model.




Since it originally came out the picture has been parodied many times, including this fine version featuring Carmen Elektra for the cover of Esquire.

Cavegirl secretary: Maj-Britt Mannson in The Nine Ages of Nakedness



Here is an unusual example of a cavegirl from Harrison Marks' 1970 film The Nine Ages of Nakedness.  The actress at the stone age typwriter is the utterly gorgeous Maj-Britt Manson.




We would guess that she is Swedish, by her name, but have been unable to find anything else about her other than this one picture of her in a rubber boat.

Cavegirl: Micky De Rauch in One Million Years BC




Here we have model Micky De Rauch who played First Shell Girl in Hammer Film's One Million Years BC (1966).  More importantly she was also Raquel Welch's body double so had to don her own version of the famous fur bikini.  Hers was the body filmed in most of the more active stunts but she later recalled that she only had the one costume so that after three weeks shooting it was "pretty dirty and smelly".

Being a body double for Raquel Welch must have been something of an intimidating role but we can see that she looks very fine indeed, with a nice trim waist and a splendid stomach.  She admitted to putting socks into her top as she couldn't compete with the Welch bust.




Things were going well between the twenty year old English model and Welch until the star was off sick one day in Lanzarote, where the exterior scenes were filmed in the prehistoric, volcanic landscape.  Welch not being there some Spanish reporters, visiting the set, took pictures of De Rauch, who happily posed for them, and published them with Welch's name attached to them.

Welch and her manager were furious and De Rauch said that the film's director advised her to take an extended holiday and that Welch subsequently cut her dead at the film premiere.  For her part she felt that Welch wasn't that attractive and her voice had a "Southern whine".  Should have had an in costume cat fight to sort it out, ladies.
