The vagina and vulva have been depicted from prehistory onwards. Visual art forms representing the female genitals encompass two-dimensional (e.g. paintings) and three-dimensional (e.g. statuettes). As long ago as 35,000 years ago… (from wikipedia article “Vagina and Vulva in Art” – link to full article)
Often, I see comments about artists who create images depicting genitals implying that “people today have no shame” or that “artists these days will do anything for attention,” but this art isn’t new at all.
In fact, some of the oldest artifacts ever found are the Venus figures. “Most of them have small heads, wide hips, and legs that taper to a point. Various figurines exaggerate the abdomen, hips, breasts, thighs, or vulva. In contrast, arms and feet are often absent, and the head is usually small and faceless.” – (same article)
The vulva has been considered apotropaic (protective/ warding off evil), healing, life giving, miraculous, and magical from the beginning of history. When I see prehistoric depictions, I feel very connected to this creatix energy that has endured all of the attempts to demote and subjugate it.
