Cracked me up. NOTHING, at all, at all wrong with it. Actually very, very clever. I tip my hat to her.

You get it, right? Love the folds. Wow. Love where her head is positioned.

No. No. It is NOT a matter of getting your mind off the gutter. She wanted to see how many would get it.

Very, very old and sacred symbology. Font of Life. Where all life starts (bar modern ‘test tube’, IVF, babies).

You do KNOW that church, cathedral and abbey doorways have portrayed this since time immemorial. You did KNOW that, right? See classic picture below.

I had not encountered this lady before BUT I will rectify that soon.

Just observe and marvel.

You do get the symbology … right? Intentional. Was meant to take YOU back to where you came from. Very clever. Very obvious.
