The Mysterious Medieval Carvings of Women Exhibitionists

Sheela-na-gigs are medieval stone figures of a naked woman spreading her legs. She is shown using her hands to pull open and proudly display her exaggerated genitals.
What makes these figures so puzzling is the fact that they occur predominantly in medieval religious buildings, such as churches and monastic sites.
