Knockarley (Offaly)

This privately-owned carving with noticeably asymmetrical eyes is unusual in being a free-standing figure carved iu the round, in its twisting contortionism and in the huge labia surrounding a small, shallow vulva.
It also protrudes its tongue.

Also unusual is the way its head
projects at right angles to the body.
