HUMAN PHALLUSES OF GREAT DIMENSIONS IN POST-PALEOLITHIC SCULPTURE




Fig. 22A1) Post-paleolithic monolithic phallic sculpture .
The colossus is pulled down, therefore it is probable that, at the time of the photo, it was not more in the cult.
Size: obvious in photography.
Positioning: Uondo, Ethiopia.




Fig. 22A2) Post-paleolithic monolithic phallic sculptures .
The phallic sculptures carved all round are two; the third sculpture constituted from a simply outlined monolith, we presume that is the "symbol" of a phallus, perhaps previous, or perhaps posterior to the others two.
Size: obvious in the photography.
Placing: Atjeh, Sumatra.
"Eliolithic" culture of Sud-Est Asia .

Fig. 22A3) Post-paleolithic monolithic phallic sculptures .
In these colossus some solar emblems are recorded, i.e. a religious subject has been added. Probably these sculptures are more recent of the other phallic monoliths Figures 22A1 and 22A2.
Size: evident in the photography.
Placing: Soddu, oriental Sidama territory.
