Settles that, I guess.
"although paleontologist Elisabeth Schmid controversially argued that it was female"

This makes it the worlds earliest known figurative sculpture.
It is always assumed that the earliest thing found is the earliest that ever was. For individual pieces it doesn't start 'wars" when something a bit earlier is found and confirmed.
