Symbols - What does heaven look like
The apron now worn in Freemason ceremonies is a sad replica of the apron and its true symbolism. The original apron goes back to Ancient Egypt and the Great Mystery Ceremonies.
But its practical use was as a temporary cover for the genitals. We have enough information to know that, for example, Sexual stimulation was used extensively to initiate candidates in some of the Mystery religions, along with Stimulation of trigger points [the two are mutually compatible].
If we compare the Egyptian pictures with those of Pompeii where the Bacchanalian ceremonies were prominent we can see that the purpose is not dissimilar.
