HUMAN PHALLUSES IN PALEOLITHIC SCULPTURE
Fig. 22.2) Carved sculpture on deer horn (drawing).
It represents a double phallus with decorations added.
Other small phalluses have been found from the Upper Paleolithic. They were used as pendants, but this is the only double one.
In France, this double phallus carved into bone is defined as part of art mobilier (prehistoric decorated or carved portable objects). The Upper Paleolithic civilization that in France produced art mobilier did not work in stone, nor did it create sculptures of large dimensions.
Length: 1.5 inches.
Origin: Gorge d'Enfer, France.
