Cannon and Fertility

This very old cannon is called ‘Si Jagur’, located on the back yard of Fatahillah Museum (Jakarta, Indonesia). It’s not only historical cannon, but the back of the cannon is actually observed by many visitors. Can you see the unique shape? This hand figure is a symbol of fertility.

Here, there still are a few people believe that the cannon can give you fertility. Just rub your belly (if you’re a woman) to the fertility symbol. Does it really work? I really don’t know, hehehe. I won’t try it, too weird for me.

Hmmmm, fertility...fire?
But how interesting, Lina, to have that hand there! The hand may symbolize fertility I think. ;-)

An interesting fertility symbol. I like the lighting in this shot, the darkness at the back emphasises the hand.
