The Phallic worship is a Pagan ritual. Pagan is the term labeled by the Vatican and addresses any spiritual or religious pre-Christian ritual.
Christmas is NOT a Christian celebration, it existed long before them. They just took it on board and claimed their savior was born that day, just like Mithras or Horus, the other savior before Christ… But that’s not the point, the point is that, if you choose to decorate your Christmas tree or house with a small statue representing fertility, potency, life, you aint go to hell. Vatican introduced the guilt and shame in your pants, other thought streams lift that guilt.
Sculptor’s wax is much harder than what your granny used to light up in church. Wax is an organic product (bees, plants animal by-products) and there are as many wax recipes as artists or craftsmen working with them. To harden the wax one can add to their composition various natural elements, tree resins, etc. One can drop a wax statue, it wont break as a porcelain would.
Wax melts between 65 and 72 Celsius. If the air in your house reaches that temperature, you’re already dead.
Of course a wax statue can be damaged. But so can a marble one (see Michelangelo’s La Pieta hammered by a hooligan or any statue defaced when the king was dead). One of the reasons I chose to work in wax is to pass this message: things last long enough; it all depends on the care you give them: plants, wax statues, famous paintings, friendships.
The Phallic statues can be used as Xmas tree top or on the mantle piece, next to your other cute little objects that you like watching, when in need of a cheer up or to bring back a sweet memory.
Why the Russian names
In view of some Human Rights scorned by the Soviet Republic of Putinia, I would like people to ponder for a moment and think of the “choice” those people made to be born there or elsewhere. And to think if there’s anything that makes us better, just because we were born in places where Human Rights are a bit more (sometimes) respected. I like to think that Globalization doesn’t only mean having a cheap Chinese workforce but also empathize with people in trouble, all around the world.
These are not sex toys or objects that can be digested. Should you try to use them other than decoration or contemplation, make a video. Im sure it would go viral.
on my FB page (Mon Graffito) in the Photo Albums are my latest Xmas decoration statues.
