Sheela na gig Necklace (Pewter)
The Sheela na gig is a mysterious figurative stone carving that is found on churches, castles and other ancient buildings around the UK and Ireland. It depicts a female figure displaying her vulva.
The origins of the Sheela na gig are not known. Several theories exist as to the purpose of these carvings; a protection against evil and death, a warning against lust, and a representation of a pagan fertility goddess.
