Jamie McCartney is an Artist and Sculptor. He created The Great Wall of Vagina, a sculpture using plaster casts of 400 women's genitals.

Empowering women:

I seem to have become the friendly male face of vaginas, so I guess people seek me out! I agreed to do this because I think it’s really important. My work, this work, is all about empowering women, so this was a no-brainer and I’m very happy to do it.

A part of the body:

I guess ‘I Am Adam’ says to me that I am Eve’s partner. We’re in partnership around this stuff, and that’s around everything including our bodies. Partners talk, so for men that find discussing this stuff difficult or complicated, I would say look at me, my face has vaginas plastered all over it and I’m not afraid. I have great conversations with women as a result of not being anxious about this stuff. So, I would say go for it, this is just part of the body and it’s nothing to be ashamed or afraid of.
