MANY AFRICAN AND ASIAN CIVILIZATIONS HAVE USED PHALLIC SYMBOLS FOR FERTILITY FOR CENTURIES

The phallic symbol is made from natural Agate

av size 45 x 5 x 3  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."
