PRIAPOS was the rustic god of the bounty of the vegetable garden. He was depicted as a dwarfish man with a huge penis, which symbolized garden fertility. His head was crowned with a peaked Phrygian cap, belying his origin as a god native to the Mysian city of Lampsakos on the Hellespont.

I carved this (a few minutes at a time) over the span of a week. I have stopped in between and photographed individual pieces (see links) that made up this final piece. It turned into one good looking pot of soup an hour later after the photo shoot :-D
The Main Stem is a heart of a carrot, 3 different butterflies.made of yam, daikon, and beet.
In this picture:
Spanish onion, Daikon, Carrot, green Onion, Celery, Cucumber, Red Pepper, Radish, Flowering Onion, Beet, Yam and Spaghetti Squash (craved with leaf patterns and used as the basket for the bouquet, mostly hidden in this view)
