Igarashi argued that her arrest was an abuse:  “I cannot understand why the police recognize the 3D data as obscene material,” she said. Previously, she had other projects on the same theme and creations based on her vagina image were included in a comic-book, a remote controlled car , a vagina smartphone case ,a lampshade and other items . The Japanese artist has already sustainers. A petition to protest on Igarashi’s arrest was launched at change.org website now. Explaining her preference for this subject as an artistic model, Igarashi seems to propose a new goal for the feminist movement: „Why did I start making these kind of art pieces? It’s because I had never seen the vagina of others and I was too self-conscious of mine. I did not know what a vagina should look like at the same time, so I thought mine was abnormal. (…) Penis, on the other hand, has been used in illustrations and has become a part of pop culture. But vagina has never been so cute. Vagina has been thought to be obscene because its been overly hidden; although it is just a part of a woman’s body.“ The video explaining her „MK Boat Project“ is on Youtube.
