Sex Lives of the Primitives
is a project currently in progress, where each art piece is a unique, all-natural
Did the ancients have kink? Of course, though how they expressed it is mostly unknown.
In France's Chauvet Cave, there is a carving, known as the oldest European art so far discovered, of what archeologists believe to be a vulva. From the Venus of Hohle Fels idols (35,000 BCE), to the walls of the Khajuraho group of monuments in Khajuraho, India (built around 1000 CE), history sheds scattered signals of mankind's fascination with sex. Though then completely natural, some of it may certainly be what is today taboo. This series is an expression of what that "some of it" may have been, as well as imaginative representations of what sex toys may have looked like, during a time when humans used only nature's resources.
