This is an ancient Roman amulet for luck. Yes those are flying penises.
Also of note, the Roman god of marriage, Mutunus Tutunus, whose name is derived from two Latin slang words for penis. His name is essentially Dick Wiener. If you have ever wondered just how much like us the Romans were, read the etymology section.
It’s a flying fuck.
It used to be given, and now look, it’s no more.
LITERALLY. A FLYING FUCK.
my favorite thing about art history is that it’s essentially nothing like people think it is.
if you think all boobs are supposed to be perky and big with perfectly centered nickel-sized nipples you probably have never actually seen a boob in real life because boobs are diverse as frick
Or maybe they’ve only seen one boob
not even a set of boobs because boobs are usually 2 different sizes
just one boob
all by its lonesome
a singular boob floating aimlessly through the void
HOW IS THERE A GIF FOR THAT
OMG the feels I am having right now
