Private Residence in Bhutan
Ejaculating Phallus Fresco
These paintings don't have any pornographic connotations. The phalluses protect against evil spirits, and are also a symbol of fertility for humans, and crops. As our guide explained: "If you are walking across a cemetery, and you feel threatened, you pull out your phallus and it will protect you." And if you are a woman? "Just rub the beads of your rosary."
