This topic lists images of male genitalia, the Phallus, scrotum and penis. These works by women artists not only question masculine self-representation and power but they also question female self-representation. The Phallus is not only or not just a representation of a penis, it represents symbolic power vis-a-vis masculinity in men and in women, heterosexual and lesbian. Vulnerability, sexuality and power are depicted in nude/naked men, in the head turned into a phallus, in the phallus as an excessive or fetishised object and as the visual sign for a power which has been comically parodied or criticised.
