    The figure, which was finally passed slowly from man to man for close and careful study, was between seven and eight inches in height, and of exquisitely artistic workmanship. It represented a monster of vaguely anthropoid outline, but with an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feelers, a scaly, rubbery-looking body, prodigious claws on hind and fore feet, and long, narrow wings behind. This thing, which seemed instinct with a fearsome and unnatural malignancy, was of a somewhat bloated corpulence, and squatted evilly on a rectangular block or pedestal covered with undecipherable characters.

    Ancient Roman gardens were filled with votaries to Priapus, all shaped like enormous schlongs. Indian gardens had Shiva Lingham which were similar fertility symbols.

    I hope the head comes off to reveal a cologne sprayer, like those glass car bottles from the 70′s. what scent do you imagine this would hold?

    When ebay started letting you avoid the auction process entirely, it jumped the shark

    Pan. It is Pan, children. The lusty, musky god of fertility (as well as other lushious things). One more hijacked pagen god transformed by Christianity (into the “devil”) to rope in the wild and abandoned good people of yore (and today)in order to fill their coffers and rule supreme.

    All the items from that seller have the same text describing them as “very rare and old” and as antiques, but this one,
    http://cgi.ebay.com/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250323613154
    on closer inspection seems to be wearing modern high heeled “stripper” boots. Then of course there’s the hairstyle and the modern view of an ideal body shape.

    Saying all that, I’d love to see it appear on the Antiques Roadshow.

    CharlesSpongeworth, great link :D :D If her anus had a built in pencil sharpener, I would have bought that..perhaps you’re supposed to stick your quill tip in there..

    Yeah these are not antiques. I have bought some small jade items from these chinese ebayers and been pleased, but I wouldn’t risk anything over 20 bucks or so with them.

    You are welcome to Nigeria.

    Looks like there are some other bronze sculptures for sale by the same seller, that, hem-hem, look quite “artistic”. Perhaps Larry Flint is redesigning the office?

    There are also Greek ‘herms’ – fertility statues often placed outside (sometimes used as boundary markers too, apparently – http://www.theoi.com/Gallery/K11.12.html.

    Same old, same old…
