MANY AFRICAN AND ASIAN CIVILIZATIONS HAVE USED PHALLIC SYMBOLS FOR FERTILITY FOR CENTURIES
The phallic symbol is made from natural Agate
av size 35 x 10 x 5 mm
Among the fertility cults, sometimes just an image of the erect penis was worshipped. Called the "lingam" in India, such was a central part of the worship of Siva as shown here. In the old Shinto religion of Japan, it was set up everywhere along the roadsides. A temple near the ancient capital of Japan housed a large upright; with a resemblance to the male organ so striking t there was no doubt what it represented. At Cyllene, the image of Hermes that the people revered exceedingly was nothing but the erect male organ on a pedestal. Similar objects were from remote times common in Italy. Evidence of large stone monuments regarded as phallic representations is particularly abundant in France and the neighboring countries. Large stone phalli have been due up in, Tennessee, Georgia, and California.. Such fertility stones may be seen in Hawaii. As a standard work on the subject sums it up, the use of upright objects as pallic fertility symbols is "universally found."
