    A mystery penis sculpture is definitely not one of the things a mountain hiker expects to come across on a hike.

    The phallic statue, which is over 1 meter tall, is located on an Alpine peak in southwestern Lower Austria and stands on top of a 1,893 meter-high (6,211 ft) mountain. 

    It was discovered by blogger Marika Roth a few days earlier. She said of the sculpture: “I believe the Oetscher just got a new mascot.”

    The news of the erect wooden penis spread across social media with people speculating over the identity of the anonymous artist behind the sculpture.

    ​People were also amused as to how the artist managed to get the sculpture to the top of the mountain without anyone noticing it.

    ​In case the “owner” of the penis does not show up, however, the statue is going to be given to the monastic order of the Cistercians, who own the site on the mountain in the Alps.
