by which he got his living. [ https://s3.amazonaws.com/nudist2020/nudist-amateur-sex.html , Ciries and Cemeteries of Etruria, (London, 1907), 2:119]. In
Rome, Fascinus, afterwards identified with the foreign god Priapus, was a really early god and was represented under
the kind of a phallus. It was considered his principal responsibility was to avert bad and evil spirits. Successful generals had the
image of Fascinus before their automobiles in their victorious march in Rome in order to be protected against the evil eye
(see E.R.E., S.V. "Phallism"). In the archaic Shinto religion of Japan the phallus was a sacred thing and was
offered at village shrines of the rice country to avert disaster for example famine or disease (see Rawson, Simple
Erotic Art, p. 72). On the island of Nias when a disease has broken out, then peculiar and frightful figures with

Demonstrates that in some scenarios the phallus and its symbolism aren't apotropaic but instead to procure fecundity. A very
common feature in the Dionysaic service was the "phallophoria," the taking round of the figure in wood
of the male sexual organ, a ritual that is a type of the magic of fertilization. A similar ritual has been observed to
Thracian kings. [See R. M. Dawkins, "The Modern Carnival in Thrace and the Cult of Dionysus," Journal of

Protected fertility. In certain processions in honour of Legba in the Slave Coast of West Africa, the phallus is carried
aloft with great pomp, fastened to the end of a long pole, something that reminds us of the "phallophoria"
described by Aristophanes. (For references in honour of Legba see Ellis, Ewe-Speaking. p. 44). https://s3.amazonaws.com/2024nudism/my-own-nudism-pic.html of Nudity in Greek Sports
The significance of the human body and its symbolism as an incarnation of
energy and electricity has been emphasized by many writers. Kenneth Clark noted
that "it was the Greeks, by their idealization of man, who turned the individual
The Greeks found in the nude two embodiments of energy, which lived on
throughout European art almost until our own day. They're the sportsman and the
hero; and from the start they were closely connected with one another. 40
It's probable the early Greek warrior-athlete or hero-athlete believed that
his nudity acted as a screen which safeguarded him from many evils and at the same
time provided him with power and energy for his responsibilities.

This belief in the nudity of the warrior-athlete was concentrated on Heracles,
the hero in whose honour the games at Olympia may have been held until Zeus
was brought there and took over the Olympic festival. There's, truly, a close
Link between Heracles and this sort of nudity. Enough evidence exists to
Demonstrate that Heracles' aboriginal facet was warlike and brave. Both substance
and literary sources indicate that Heracles initially appeared as a warrior. The
most primitive figures uncovered at Olympia represent nude warriors equipped with
large helmets, little shields, and spears. These helmeted statues that may
Signify Heracles were votive offerings of the winning athletes dedicated to

Olympia often took the form of the Olympian-Zeus in whose honour afterward the
Olympic Games were held.41
Heracles has been "traditionally a nude hero"42 and he seems bare in many
vase representations and other artifacts of the 7th century and early 6th century.
Occasionally he appears naked and lightly armed fighting against enemies.43
Cretan Bull. Gardiner considered this story is old and that nakedness by the
artist without any support from tradition is not possible. Again, the same
can be said of the scene in the metope where Heracles appears naked receiving
from Atlas the apples of the Hesperides. At Corinth, we learn from Pausanias
