Information about the ‘Sheela-na-gig’:
Usually a carved stone figure of a naked woman displaying her exaggerated genitalia.
Sheela-na-gigs are usually on or in Romanesque churches of western and central Europe.
Dated roughly from 1000 to 1200 CE
The greatest concentration of Sheela figures occurs in Ireland, also significant numbers in England, France and Spain, smaller numbers found in Scotland, Wales and elsewhere in Europe.
Although many hypotheses have been made, Sheela-na-gig remains puzzling and its meaning is still uncertain.
