Janus Figure

In Caldragh Cemetery on Boa Island, Lower lough Erne stand two unique stone carvings. The larger of these is a Janus figure , two figures back to back with pear shaped heads and interlacing between the heads representing hair. The East face pictured left is carved with a penis and is the male side of the figure, and the west face pictured above is the female side. Both of these carving are in high relief. The smaller figure which is known as “the Lustyman” because it was found on the nearby island Lusty More, may in fact be a female figure. Both figures are described as Celtic Idols. The Carvings appear to have weathered quite a lot in recent years

Here's today's calming water photo from the waters of the Erne.

Water has a calming effect so if you need a little calm today, open it up in full size & look at it for a little while. It really does help, folks.๐Ÿ˜˜

Keep safe & keep well, folks. And stay home
