The ancient concept of the sacred phallus in spirituality, art, and culture (that is, before moralistic taboos attempted to mute phallic representations with fig leaves for the geniality of civilization). Obviously NSFW.

The ancient Romans even depicted Priapus on the reverse of some of their coins, some have him weighing his penis on a scale. Imagine an image of George Washington with a monstro boner on the back of the one dollar bill. Father of our country indeed.
