Because to every ying there is a yang, here is the masculine variety of the “Yoni” piece I did yesterday. Shiva Linga is the male counterpart to the yoni, representing the Hindu god Shiva. An upward pointing triangle, swords, the sky, and the rays of the sun are all masculine symbols.  Neither yoni or lingam is better or stronger than the other, just balancing and different.  Neither can exist without the other.  To read more see Shiva Lingam.

The Sanskrit name for the female body part, “yoni” means “source or origin of life” or “divine passage.”  In contrast, “vagina” means “sheath or scabbard for a sword.”  I like yoni much more as it celebrates femininity instead of making it completely masculine.  It shows an entirely different reverence.  The downward triangle also symbolizes femininity.  For more information about “Yoni” go here.
