Adlwang, Oberösterreich, Österreich
  • All weather

An approx. 50cm long cairn stone with grooves in the surface and a hole which a "hand" can fit into. A relict of >>Fertility and women’s culture<<, The symbolic origin, the opening of a vagina, has been given responsibility for the fulfilment of the desire to have a baby and healing success (gout). Originally, it was on the Nikolaus church which was demolished in 1792, and today it is at the back of the sexton house. The owner, who attributes her old age to this "place of power", knows many stories and will even let you try out the stone for yourself.
