The Famous Hillside Giant at Cerne Abbas

The English Heritage listed Cerne Abbas Giant is carved into the Dorset chalk hillside, known as Giant Hill. It is 55 metres tall and dates at least as far back as the seventeenth century CE, possibly more. In Wikipedia it is described as: "Petrographic, colossal, nude, ithyphallic and clavigerous," which possibly explains why some women might find it interesting. :) :)
