    because fat isn't attractive

    Fat is a cause of ill-health. Health is a big factor in successful / unsuccessful child birth .. or was.. Perhaps not so much now. But two million years of engrained reproductive evolution does not disappear because of 100 years of medicine

    Starvation makes everybody skinny. There is no connection, 3,000 years is similar to life on Mars, it's a different reality.

    Idk, good question for the men to answer about what attracts them over it. My guess is that she doesn't appear pregnant, and he can get her that way. I mean 3000 years ago until today, the ring missing didn't signify that she had another man watching over her or not, the way a pregnant woman would signal that. So, she appeared single and available.

    So back then were they attracted to women with eagle's talons too - did you notice her feet? (I bet your eyes were not focused there) If you go back another 3000 years, it's not the same. Check out the image in the article below.

    This was from 1550 - not much waist there -

    Ok. Standards of physical beauty culturally is not the same within every square inch of planet earth, and the standards of beauty has change throughout human history and will continue to change.

    i feel like artists don't represent the beauty standards of the entirety of the human race thousands of years ago

    you know, it's more like their own personal interpretation and the way they wanted to express their thoughts that determined the outcome

    maybe just me though
