Form and Function: A Penis Sculpture and Corner Protector

By 28 March 2013

This will be my second penis related blog, which is purely coincidental and by no means related to any obsession of sorts, although perhaps not far from it.

The grand statue of Grgur of Nin stands in front of the Golden Gate and legend says he had a large penis. The urban myth came about as further down the road on the northeastern corner outside the palace is a sculpture popping out of the ground that resembles a penis. As Grgur is wearing a long gown, it is believed that his penis is so long that is travels below ground, revealing itself further down the street.

Actually, the penis-like sculpture is a corner protector of a building but it truly looks like a penis, hence a myth was born.

The corner penis provides a fun photo-opp after a few too many drinks :)
