Abstract:
We find, that at the very basing of the history of phallic worship and adoration is a rich heritage of symbolism; a culture of art that has its beginning and end in the portrayal of the penis. With interpretations and even cultures born out of such symbolism, it is interesting to understand its beginnings, expansion and varying significance across the globe. Principally, it aimed at placing the phallus as an-all powerful and unattainable symbol. This paper aims at tracing the unfolding of the tradition as it embedded itself in the roots of the world's dominant religions and practices, whilst setting up a world less-equal for women
