Megumi Igarashi was reportedly charged for sharing 3D scans as part of her crowdfunded project to make a “pussy boat.”
The trial of Megumi Igarashi, a Japanese artist known for making models of her vagina, began on Wednesday in Tokyo. She faces obscenity charges.
She was charged with sending her donors CD-ROMs containing data for making 3D prints of her vagina, the Guardian reported in December. The data allowed people to make 3D prints of the boat modeled on her vagina, the Japan Times reported.
