In Greek mythology, Priapus was a minor rustic fertility god, protector of livestock, fruit plants, gardens and male genitalia. He was most famous for this later attribute, which was clearly the focal point of his depictions, as well as the subsequent myths and literature that centered around his largely phallic character. His mother was Aphrodite and father Hermes (or Dionysus depending on the different classical sources). Statues and images of Priapus typically show a well-built, bearded man distinguishable by way of his enormous, erect penis, usually colored red. Crude sculptures of Priapus were often carved from cheap logs by the laity, while more elaborate stone statues and paintings were commissioned by the aristocracy. Such sculptures were placed in gardens and fields in the hopes of guaranteeing abundant crops, as the large phallus was taken to symbolize generation and fecundity. Farmers worshiped Priapus in the hope that he would bestow great bounties of grains and vegetables upon them.
