Legend of Aebawi

Once upon a time, there lived a young lad and a young lass who were engaged. One day, On his way out to sea to harvest seaweed, the lad stopped, dropped the lass on a rock just near the beach, promising to return to the beach and pick her up later. But, all of sudden, a very strong wind blew, and waves were crashing in, and the lass fell from the rock and drowned to death. Since then, the villagers couldn't catch fish in that sea and a rumor saying that it’s all because of the spirit of the dead girl started to spread. One day, a fisherman wasn’t catching any fish like always and he peed into the sea. Then suddenly, the sea became filled with fish and he came home with a big catch. Since then, the villagers made wooden penis carvings on the 15th day of the New Year (lunar calendar) to soothe the spirit of the dead girl. Still today, the villagers hold rituals, making and hanging wood penis carvings that day and on the 5th day of October on the lunar calendar.
