The Great Wall of Vagina

You've heard of the Great Wall of China... now let us introduce the Great Wall of Vagina! Sure, you can't see it from space, but you CAN check out a huge number of plaster vulvas. As you'll see, no two are alike and every one is as normal as can be. (Though they are all shaved because it's a bit difficult to make a plaster cast of hair.) Check out the "Images" section for pictures of the panels.

(from the website:)

Female genitalia have long been a source of fascination, recently of celebration but generally of confusion. Today it seems that creating images of the vagina is the sole preserve of pornographers, erotic artists and feminists. Step in British artist Jamie McCartney who has grasped the nettle to create a monumental wall sculpture all about this most intimate of places. For 400 women their privates have gone public...

Half a decade since its humble beginnings, The Great Wall of Vagina has enticed women from many different countries and all walks of life to volunteer to be cast by McCartney in an overwhelmingly positive reaction to the project.

The 9 metre long polyptych consists of four hundred plaster casts of vulvas, all of them unique, arranged into ten large panels. McCartney set out to make this project as broad and inclusive as possible. The age range of the women is from 18 to 76. Included are mothers and daughters, identical twins, transgendered men and women as well as a woman pre and post natal and another one pre and post labiaplasty.

It’s not vulgar, it’s vulva!
