Phallic symbols can represent wellness and good health and are often shaped in the form of a penis. The ancient Egyptions also reference phallic symbols with Osiris. When Osiris's body was chopped up into 13 peices, his wife went out and retrieved all of the peices of his body. All except for his penis, which was said to have been swallowed by a fish. The phallus was a symbol of fertility and Min, the God of Fertility appears to look like a penis. It's engraved into stone carvings and is found in other artifacts. There are all different forms of phallic symbols, but they are all linked to good luck and health. They were used to represent positive things and hopes for good things to come in the future.
