Firefighters had to rescue a young man from a giant vagina (sculpture) outside a microbiology building at Germany's Tübingen University. Fernando de la Jara's sculpture is titled "Chacán-Pi" referring to a Quechuan word that means a "place where the action of water has tunneled through a large rock or a mountain, also designates the act of lovemaking," according to the artist. The sculpture was not damaged. From NY Mag:
Basically, de la Jara intended for people to check out the sculpture up close. "The principal part of the work isn't outside."
So the American bro might not have been totally off-base, a small consolation for the sheer scale of his embarrassment. "It's participatory art," de la Jara said. "It should be entered." It's just that, since the sculpture was installed in 2001, no one's actually gotten stuck. "I believe [he got caught] because he had a lack of coordination" de la Jara said. "Or maybe it was a lack of sensibility."
