About the title of this piece.
When i finished this piece and was looking at it, lying flat on the bench in my studio, I was reminded of Gustave Courbet's 1866 painting 'The Origin of the World'. Several friends who have seen the finished work have agreed with me on this. So, although I do not anticipate this sculpture ever becoming as notorious as that painting was in it's day; I acknowledge and thank the late Mr Courbet, at least for the title.
