There is no such thing as a “perfect vagina” and English artist Jamie McCartney set out to prove that with his” Great Wall Of Vagina,” which features the likenesses of over 400 women’s’ vaginas ranging in age from 18 to 76. McCartney’s piece includes the vulvas and labias of mothers and daughters, identical twins, transgendered men and women, pre and postnatal mothers, and women who have had labiaplasty surgery.
“For many women, their genital appearance is a source of anxiety and I was in a unique position to do something about that… Vulvas and labia are as different as faces and many people, particularly women, don’t seem to know that,” says McCartney.
