Ceramic Sheela Na Gig - Wall or Altar Plaque
This is a handmade stoneware, Celtic depiction of a female form with an exaggerated vulva. In a historical context, these may have been used to ward off death or evil, because they were often found above doors or windows. She is considered and Irish fertility goddess, seen about ready to give birth to new worlds.
Either way, she is a fierce patron of the modern day feminist and historical art lover.
