Carlos Enriquez 1:1 Scale Vagina Monster!!

Carlos Enriquez

Artist Carlos Enriquez has gone lifesize with one of his characters in this insane 1:1 Vagina Monster! It's made of fiberglass and handpainted. From Mishka Bloglin:

In the work “MAGICAL VAGINA” the artist intends to embody one of these ideas: vagina as the giver of life, a symbolic tunnel through which we can go from one world to another, birth, death, transformation. In a world in which the culture of the phallic has been imposed and the vagina mistreated and denigrated to the point of being seen as something vulgar or pornographic, arises the proposal of its vindication to take her to the same level of equality with the phallic symbol, its encephalic body and its standing posture point out the thinking presence, that feels, that observes its surroundings with her attentive eye and wants to be acknowledged, respected, “the vagina life giver, powerful, exists, feels, wants to be loved without having to hide, enables rebirth, generates life. I intend the confrontation with the free spectator, give him something that invites him to reflect about the theme on how this feminine organ has been mistreated and denigrated, because the vagina can connect us with the most pure, powerful and mysterious forces of the universe, God present? The vagina has been wounded for a long time, “skimmed blood.”

Carlos will be featured in a Phillips De Pury show featuring Latin American artists in October in New York. This piece could fetch as much as $32,000 or more!
