A view of the art installation 'Giant Walk-In Vagina' installed at a former women's prison by artist Reshma Chhiba in Johannesburg taken on August 27, 2013. I can't think of anything more visceral to install at a former women's prison than a giant walk-through vaginal canal. That's exactly what artist Reshma Chhiba has done at the old Women's Jail in Hillsbrow, Johannesburg, as part of her art exhibition 'The Two Talking Yonis.' (Yoni is the Sanskrit word for the vagina and/or vulva). Chhiba's installation is a a 12-meter long (approximately 39 feet) tunnel made from red velvet and cotton. Visitors to the tunnel experience the sounds of screaming and laughing, which are played inside.
