ACEO 5 - Winged Phalloi


Badge Awards



The Greeks and Romans were a weird bunch. Among their oddities was this little....err...guy. Generally portrayed with wings, occasionally with dog or lion paws and genitals of its own* they were used as good luck charms and amulets, and were worn by all genders and ages to ward off evil. You can see examples in a fair number of museums.

I don't make this stuff up. I just do tiny paintings of 'em.

This ACEO is a small (2.5 x 3.5) original mixed media painting--ink and colored pencil--cut out and collaged onto an interestingly textured paper with a transparent vellum overlay. It is up for auction on e-bay at [link] I'll also be offering a limited edition wee little print of this one here shortly--check my blog at [link] for details on that.

*Recursive anatomy at its finest.
