Indian Hindu 18-19thc grey marble sculpture of a shiva lingam , this piece was temple used with impacted sand debris from centuries of use the tan material can be removed to reveal the wonderful eroded yoni surface . A bit of information of this type of sculpture. For a sincere devotee, the Lingam is not merely a block of stone. It is all-radiant - talks to him, raises him above body-consciousness, and helps to communicate with the Lord. Lord Rama worshiped the Shiva Lingam at Rameshwaram. Ravana, the learned scholar, worshiped the golden Linga for its mystical powers.Based on the teachings of Swami Sivananda. size L11" W 7.5" H 8" weight 18lb
