Genitals in the Wild: Labia and Art

My boyfriend and I went to a Toulouse-Lautrec exhibit at the local art museum, and as we were climbing the stairs to get to the display—I noticed this painting on the staircase.

Untitled, Ryotaro Tokita The artist, Ryotaro Tokita, left the piece untitled, so you cannot take away any clues or insight from the name.

But if it were up to my interpretation, I would guess that Tokita was inspired by a rather symmetrical pair of labia majora.
