  • A cast of Jimi Hendrix’s erect penis is on display at a phalological museum in Iceland.
  • The cast was created by Cynthia Albritton who created similar work with at least 50 rock stars.
  • Cynthia agreed to donate her work to the museum before she died.

The Icelandic Phallological Museum has unveiled a plaster of the erect penis of legendary rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix after it was donated by its creator, nicknamed Cynthia “Plaster Caster”.

The museum has been home to nearly 400 artifacts, ranging from whale sex organs in plexiglass tubes to raccoon penises in formaldehyde.

The collection even features bronze genitalia of all the Icelandic handball teams that won silver at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Hendrix’s phallus cast was created by US artist Cynthia Albritton, nicknamed Cynthia “Plaster Caster”, who created a cast of penises from 50 rock stars.

He agreed to donate the item before he died earlier this year, sent along with a certificate of authenticity describing the object as a close replica of the 1968 original version.

Albritton used latex molding to produce eight replicas of Hendrix’s phallus two years before he died.

Hendrix, which includes a repertoire Lady Foxy and Hey Joedied of an overdose in 1970 at the age of 27 years.

“This is definitely one of the most valuable items,” said Thordur Olafur Thordarson, the museum’s assistant curator.

Some of the whale exhibitions in the museum are rare, so they are considered inexpensive.

“We’re really lucky to have it,” Thordarson told AFP.

The artist was persuaded to donate the piece after an American couple, who were neighbors, visited a museum in Reykjavik while traveling.

“He thought this would be a great opportunity for him to leave a permanent legacy,” Thordarson said.

The plaster cast was announced at a ceremony in early June.

“Happy,” Steven Warren, the first visitor to Iceland from England, told AFP.

French tourist Pascal Podwojewski said that he did not “think history will remember the size of the penis, the music will be more remembered”.
