The phallus is an eternal symbol from antiquity to the present. It is able to transcend the differences of time and place and is universal. It symbolizes the perpetuation of life and active power. The artist has chosen a beautiful light stone with veins running through it, perhaps to mimic skin color. Undoubtedly this sculpture served an important part in ancient rituals. It is has been carved to perfection and exact symmetry giving formal expression to their inherent reality and perhaps the universe. The phallus is also the symbol of the propagation of cosmic forces. Universal and eternal, this is an incredible work of art that exposes mankind's desire for answers of him and the universe. - (PF.3178)
