I'm a bit curious. Why do you think it's necessary to find a utilitarian angle to the Shiva Lingam? It has long been considered to be the phallic symbol of Shiva, bringing life to the world, no different from hundreds of mother-goddess symbols from all over the world.

In addition, ALL Vedic human manifestations of divinity are blue, not just Shiva. Rama, Krishna, etc. Vishnu and Shiva, in their original forms and their incarnations are always blue. So not sure what the point is.

And no, Shiva Lingam does not mean "Mark or Symbol." It literally means "The phallus of Shiva." Sanskrit. And the animal in question is a bull, not a cow. FYI.
