i would argue that they were worshiping the epi-paleolithic far-sighted mother goddess and the bucranium is the totem of the tribe. there are many many many steatopygous female representations which you can look at on the catal hoyuk website.

neither of my girls were ever asked such a question so i think this teacher must be commended.
