Phallus Amulet - Teracotta Replica of Freud's Clay Amulet
Analysing the course of cultural development, Freud bemoaned the fact that the genitals have become 'objects of shame ... and even disgust' whereas they were once the 'pride and hope of living beings; they were worshipped as gods'.
This replica amulet is earthenware with terracotta slip, press moulded from the original clay sculpture by Martha Todd.
