Well, you certainly don't see something like this every day on your way to work. In Brazil, an artist's 108-foot vagina sculpture that is embedded on a hillside has people talking.
Juliana Notariunveiled the piece on New Year's Eve, sharing pictures of her sculpture on social media, which took 11 months to build. It took a lot less time for people to comment on it and voice their displeasure with the work. The sculpture was built on the grounds of a former sugar mill in the Brazilian state of Pernambuco
Juliana said the sculpture, named 'Diva', was intended to 'question the relationship between nature and culture in our phallocentric and anthropocentric western society. One person on Facebook commented: 'One of the stupidest things I've ever seen!' 'Who do you lefties think you're fooling? Apart from useful idiots on the left, of course,' another person said.
Another Facebook user questioned how appropriate the artwork was for children. 'With all due respect I didn't like it Imagine me hanging out with my little daughters in this park and they ask... daddy what is that? What will I answer? 'Didn't think it was cool. It's worse the government allowed this to be done in a public park.'
It wasn't all bad as one person referred to it as 'amazing and beautiful' while another wrote 'I loved it! An intimate part of us exposed with such beauty. We need more such works that elevate feminism and its nuances.'
