One female artist thought that a vagina shaped kayak was a great piece of art.

However, authorities did not share her enthusiasm or artistic views.

42-year-old Japanese artist Megumi Igarashi, who is also known as Rokudenashiko, was arrested for sharing the 3D models of her vagina.

The photos were sent to people who helped her fund the unique project, a kayak that is in the shape of her private parts.

She managed to collect almost $10,000 from supporters of her project. Igarashi began the project by making a 3D image of her privates and sent the photos to people who donated money for the project.

Authorities however, did not see it as art. After the image was distributed to her supporters, Igarashi was arrested and charged for breaking Japanese obscenity laws.
