Jardin fleuri is a series representing the different ages of a woman. The first picture is called Virgin Soil, the second is called Mûres which means both “blackberries” and “mature” represent puberty and first periods, the third picture is called Broken Eggs. Broken eggs represent the loss of virginity in arts... etc.
The series started from the photo "Blooming Garden" (this one) representing a mother. This series is all about harmony with our bodies and our majestic nature. The natural miracle of life, age and time. I feel blessed to be a woman and truly wanted to represent how I personally felt when a seed grew in my body. Generally, it's an homage to all women and nature incredibleness.
This is not a generalization of womanhood saying that we are created to follow a specific line and end up making babies. No. We must not always go through all the stages ; obviously. Fortunately, most of us have the incredible power of hosting a life in our womb and even though women may choose to not have children, I don't think we should deny it by not talking about it. Whatever are their choices of life and personal stories, all women are wonderful!

and if you all hate porn so much how come you don't report all the degrading stuff we get on the front page all the time? ,
this shows an aspect of motherhood that society wants to air brush out, it is an aspect we need to see,
weather someone is a mother or not, man or woman their body is beautiful and must be respected ,
so thank you for this beautiful piece of artwork
I think it was a good concept and very well done. The so called 'imperfections', aka stretch marks, just add to the beauty and the realness of the photo.. In short, well done and congrats on the DD
i honestly can't see why people are complaining about this. we all popped out of these at one point, people need to get used to the fact that not everybody likes hiding theirs and actually likes embracing it and the life it can bring
i would only suggest putting a mature tag on it so that there's less pre-teens complaining about something containing vaginas (barely even) that they can't jack off to
Not all women have to give birth, but as a woman who has given birth, it is nice to see it celebrated. Especially in such a beautiful way.
As for the people who think this is porn, shame on you. Do you see actual genitalia? Do you see ejaculation?
When you click 'Report Deviation' you get a list of things that asks you if you saw it. Take a look at it and realize you're wrong.
And to me it just seems like the people calling it 'beautiful' are just perverts.
Also, there's a bottom half of a woman but, as you said, the "exposed" part isn't exposed, it's covered with a small bush made out of flowers and grass. That's like saying a girl with a bra on also is "free porn", because hey, she only has a bra on? Or guys with short pants.
maybe the people calling it beautiful actually mean it? i don't use the word beautiful to describe things, but i certainly like the picture and the meaning behind it. plus it genuinely looks pretty to me. you should stop assuming that everybody is a 'pervert' and take things for face value.
(also to the artist - im not dissing your work its just my opinion about what i think about this display...)
flowers are symbols of nature and growing in a sense, and what is child birth? growing, creating life and nature, it's not sexual.
i don't understand why people see something to do with genitalia and instantly jump to 'porn' without... *gasp*.. using your brain to figure out what it means for yourself, or just reading the description. it's a really simple concept people.
