I can't believe this!!!!! I am reading a book called "Mary Magdalene, Christianity's Hidden Goddess" by Lynn Picknett.

You might remember she wrote some books with Clive Prince about the Turin Shroud and the one about the Templars.

Anyway, I have repeatedly read that there is a phallic group of rocks in this very heretical painting of Da Vinci's but I could never make it out. To me, the rocks were as about as phallic as a carrot. I've read over and over that its a phallus complete with two "rocks" but couldn;t see it at all.

Then I saw it!!!!!!!! It is absolutely anatomically correct down to blood veins and "rocks" and...well...I better be careful what I say!

(I can see that we could be on thin ice here as far as what is appropriate to discuss...so do me a favor and be grown-up about this!)

I just can't believe he got away with this. He most certainly understood psychology and what it really means about humans "having eyes to see." He must have known the average person would never make it out because its the last thing they would think in relation to the "virgin" mother.

The first case of hidden pictures! LOL! Can you see it..."Okay Da Vinci Junior...in this painting, you need to find an erect phallus." ...LOL

Wow...medieval pornography...whoda thunk?!!!

The reasons he did this are the real gems in the story.

And to think the church paid him good money for this work of art!
