Can an old dismantled water pump and the drainage space around it be regarded as a lingam and yoni? A certain resemblance cannot be denied. The person who has placed the tiny flower in the middle of the pump plate has nicely made his point.

For the last 8 weeks I have taken you on a visual tour of the idea of lingam and yoni, of Shiva and Parvati. I think it shows us a celebration of life to which every human being of whatever creed or non-creed can relate.
