Shiva Lingam

A Shiva lingam, on a yoni, at the Keesara Gutta temple in Andhra Pradesh.  It's variously a penis and vagina, plus a host of more ambiguous concepts like "proof" and "source."  Shiva Purana is a text that describes the worship of lingam like this as "originating in the loss and recovery of Shiva's phallus."
