NSFW – The Great Wall of Vaginas

Every woman is beautiful and unique!

Warning: As the title suggests, this post is full of vaginal renderings. If you do not want to see a wall of labia, do not continue reading. We repeat, do not continue reading.

UK-based sculptor Jamie McCartney has spent the better half of a decade creating hundreds of renderings of female genitalia. In a project titled “The Great Wall of Vagina,” the artist demonstrates not only his ability to craft effective word play, but also his knack for capturing the physical diversity of labia in a 30-foot polyptych.


McCartney recruited around 400 women for the series of 10 panels, casting the vulvae of women aged 18 to 76. During the five-year process, he encountered identical twins, transgender individuals, pre- and postnatal women and pre- and post-labiaplasty patients, all of whom were willing to submit their genitalia to plaster in the name of art.

“This is about grabbing the attention, using humour and spectacle, and then educating people about what normal women really look like,” “The Great Wall of Vagina” site states. There McCartney makes sure to point out that the work of sculpture is not erotic art, nor is it pornography — it’s actually closer to “the Vagina Monologues of sculpture.


“For many women their genital appearance is a source of anxiety,” McCartney adds on the site, “and I was in a unique position to do something about that.”

As with any vagina-centric artwork, online responses to the sculptural feat have ranged from creepy to insightful over the years. The Frisk went as far as to call the wall the eighth wonder of the world.

An “Erotic ART” moment in the South of France

Some years ago I was living in the South of France with my love who had spent time growing up in the region. The coastal road from Monaco to Nice is narrow and the billboards along the route are in your face as you go around the curves. I passed this particular billboard daily and as an artist my creative imagination landed on what was so familiar about it!Artist_J_Gordon-5

An inspired erotic art piece revealed itself with a perfect canvas primed!Artist_J_Gordon-8

My love, our Russian friend and I sat on the wall directly across from it contemplating the sexy art that might be created.

We went back to our villa and set about creating our inspired intimate replacement for the billboard on the terrazzo floor.

We drank wine, painted, cut out the piece and made editorial comments such as “add more veins! Make it pinker!”
