US Student Trapped In Giant Vagina Sculpture In Germany
This is so funny! I just had to share. The student whose name has been withheld, was trapped deep inside the cave-like structures last week. In the space of 24 hours , two spectacular rescue team were carried out in southern Germany with over 20 firefighters trying to free the exchange student from the artwork Chacán-Pi (Making Love).
According to The Guardian, The Chacán-Pi (Making Love) artwork by the Peruvian artist Fernando de la Jara has been outside Tübingen University's institute for microbiology and virology since 2001 and had previously mainly attracted juvenile sniggers rather than adventurous explorers.
De la Jara said the 32-ton sculpture was made out of red Veronese marble is meant to signify "the gateway to the world". Although we don't know how the young American in Tübingen found himself in the tight corner, the Police confirmed that the firefighters turned midwives delivered the student "by hand and without the application of tools".
The mayor of Tübingen told the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper that he struggled to imagine how the accident could have happened, "even when considering the most extreme adolescent fantasies. To reward such a masterly achievement with the use of 22 firefighters almost pains my soul."
Isn't this funny? What do you all think?
