FLOWERS OF LIFE

THE VAGINA AS THE MUSE

Gustave Courbet, L’origine du monde (Origin of the world), 1866

We commissioned a group of 13 international artists to produce a collection of interpretations of the vagina. By presenting these different visions and distinct lenses we aspire to push this vital cultural conversation forward and help transform our beliefs around the vagina.

The image of a vagina is mostly non-existent in the art world. It’s often seen as too taboo rather than the powerful muse that she is. Yet how can something so exquisite, human and vital not inspire great works of art?
