This giant 180 feet (55 m) tall, armed with a heavy club, seems modern in appearance with his round eyes, eyebrows, mouth, and missing nose. The five fingers of his hands are well aligned, his breasts and ribs marked, his penile case retained by a string, and his calves rounded. The figure might also be an erect hermaphrodite. The image was published for the first time in 1764 and attributed somewhat mischievously to the papists. To other interpreters, the figure is either a fertility god from before the Common Era or a half-Roman, half-Celtic Hercules from about the first century. The drawing shows the desire to represent warriors. It also serves as an appeal to external powers, indicating a frame of mind still common among many human beings.
