It is characterized by its elongated, slender quadrangular shape, ending in a pyramidal tip.Still used today in more or less imposing reproductions, it is considered a symbol of prosperity and fertility. The evidence of the phallic form emphasizes the power of masculine energies, bearers of fertilizing force in their encounter with the Earth, with feminine, receptive energies.
Often arranged in pairs at nodal points in the city, in a variety of cultures and traditions, obelisks were believed to contribute to the sublimation of the energies of the place and bring prosperity and fertility.
