Fertility symbol

A fertility symbol is an object used by early historical human societies representing fertility. These symbols took on several different forms.

For example, some fertility symbols took on the appearance of a rotund human female as obesity was seen as attractive in times when food was scarce. Also, certain animals that reproduce often have been viewed as fertility symbols, such as frogs and rabbits.
