Porto - "de Maria, de Mariana, de Madalena…"

I did a random tp to a showcased sim this! The "de Maria, de Mariana, de Madalena…" installation by Meilo Minotaur and CapCat Ragu is stunning!

You arrive at what I'll call The Giving Tree and there are 3 gifts of av's. The note at the arrival point implies that they're useful for men to wear while touring the exhibits so they can experience them as a woman. The image above is "Madalena".

Also from the notecard:

"de Maria, de Mariana, de Madalena…" is a project conceived for the fifth edition of All My Independent Women which, more than an exhibition that occurs irregularly across Portugal, is a platform for feminist thinking. While most projects are on display in Coimbra at Casa da Esquina, between May 21st and June 18th of 2010, others find their place elsewhere in the city. Our project takes form in the virtual environment of Second Life.

I arrived just as the sun came up and it was magical. Some parts are disturbing. All are thought provoking and beautiful in their way. You can see the rest of the photos I took (and much better ones by others) at Koinup. This is well worth a visit!

It's lovely, isn't it? I stumbled upon this place completely by accident about a month ago and just had to write a story.
