Small Roman Phallus Pendant

Small winged phallus amulet made of solid 925 silver.

Reconstruction of a beautiful, massive original piece. The phallus was considered a general good luck charm in antiquity and was also worn by children or as an amulet on a horse's harness. Even Roman doorbells (tintinabuli) were often made in the shape of a phallus.  It was a symbol of fertility and prosperity and was seen as warding off evil, similar to a horseshoe today. In Italy, it is still common today to wear a lucky charm in the shape of a stylised phallus. Today, hardly anyone is aware of the origin of the small horns called "corno".

For us today, it is a symbol from a bygone era in which sexuality was considered a natural and not at all obscene part of life. Only the Christian moral concepts, which made physical love and the human body something impure and sinful, shaped our present-day image of this ancient lucky charm.
