Cerne Abbas, Dorset, England
A 180 foot high figure of a man bearing a club, carved into the chalk of the hillside. It is not clear who carved the giant, and speculation has ranged from the Romans, to Celts, to Iron Age Britons. The figure's rather impressive physical endowments have made him the source of fertility practices; local folklore says that an infertile woman who spends the night within the figure will then be able to bear a child.
