The Gauls and their Legacy

Sheela-na-Gig.

Sheela-na-gigs are figurative carvings of naked women displaying an exaggerated vulva. They can be found on churches, castles and other buildings, particularly in Ireland and Great Britain. They are usually found over the entrances, and depict the 'doorway' to and from the world. This one is from the 12th century, on the church at Kilpeck, Herefordshire, England.
