Boa Island

March 27th, 2010

In Caldragh Cemetery on Boa Island, Lower lough Erne stand two unique stone carvings. Dating from the first century A.D. the larger of these is a Janus figure, two figures back to back with pear shaped heads and interlacing between the heads representing hair. seems to consist of a woman and a man, fastened together back to back by a solid band. Although the leather band does not really include the arms the hands of both individuals do seem to be tightened by shackles and they are unable to free themselves.

The male person is lusty and we wonder why he cannot turn around and mate with his partner. The male figure with a phallus underneath his crossed arms seems to be blind on one eye, which may refer to Odin, who was blind at the left eye as well. He gave his left eye to the giant Mimir who allowed him to drink from the source of wisdom.

The third figure which is known as “the Lustyman” because it was found on the nearby island Lusty More, may in fact be a female figure. Both figures are described as Celtic Idols. The Carvings appear to have weathered quite a lot in recent years.
