Anatomically Incorrect in Rockland
The Giant Vagina of Rockland is a big sculpture that stands in front of the County Courthouse. This sculpture was erected sometime in the 1970's and was regarded at first as modern, abstract art. It used to stand in front of the County Courthouse and faced the main street. In the 1980's people started complaining that it looked more anatomical than abstract––it looked like a vagina! Suddenly nobody could look at it and NOT see a vagina, so the legislators swiveled the offending side of the sculpture away from the street and towards the courthouse. And there it stands today! –Robert Martens
