Historical Statues Get Vulva-fied

Someone has made my week. An anonymous street artist in Halifax, Nova Scotia is attaching felt vulvas to the groins of statues throughout the city. I adore not only felt vulvas, but also appearances of fabric vulvas (in this case, velvet and satin) in unlikely places. Is this ‘vulva-nator’ (as Jamie Frevele at theMarySue.com calls him or her) taking the yarnbombing trend in a new direction? Making a sexual/political statement? Or just poking fun at the status quo? Regardless, I wholeheartedly agree with Frevele that I can’t wait to see where the next vulva-fied statue will crop up.

Thanks to @kbmeister for the link.
