Synopsis: Sheela-na-gigs are carvings of female images depicted as naked and posing in a manner which accentuates the most powerfully evocative symbol of the vulva. They were erected on many churches of the medieval period and are generally referred to as protective talismans or good luck symbols. This book is written from a non-academic perspective and so aims to be accessible to the general reader. The catalogue section of the book is a very comprehensive alphabetically listed reference to all known sheela-na-gigs in Ireland and Britain. All the entries in the book include a description, details of the location and a drawing.
