Details:

Vagina Dentata [Latin for 'Toothed vagina'] represents the classic symbol of men's fear of sex, expressing the unconscious belief that a woman may eat or castrate her partner during intercourse.

This piece was created with the specific intent of looking like an artifact from an ancient civilization. It is specifically based on the Polynesian and Maori legends of Maui and Hina/Hinenuitepo.

Polynesians said the savior-god Maui tried to find eternal life by crawling into the mouth [or vagina] of his mother Hina, in effect trying to return to the womb of the Creatress; but she bit him in two and killed him.

The Maori version of this myth tells the story of Maui, who enters Hinenuitepo through her toothed vagina to try and pluck her heart, in an attempt to make mankind immortal. He fails and becomes the first man to die.
