Pop legend Madonna and artist NFT Beeple have combined their talents to create the Mother of Creation NFT project, in which a tree grows out of the song icon’s vagina. It’s shocking, of course, and quite bizarre, but it’s trending for Madonna who has spent her career as a provocateur. However, we somehow think that she may have misjudged this NFT.
The elements are there for something incredible; Beeple is behind the breakthrough NFT Everydays: the First 5000 Days, which set a new NFT sales record and started it all and Madonna is, well… Madonna. Non-fungible tokens are a way to save digital files on the blockchain, creating a shortage. Read our NFT tips guide and tips on how to create an NFT for free to learn more.
Madonna and Beeple’s team is a series of digitally rendered videos – titled Mother of Nature, Mother of Evolution and Mother of Technology – and each one is, frankly, very graphic. One sees a digital Madonna giving birth from a tree, another butterflies escape from her vagina, and in the third a mechanical centipede scurries out of her ladylike garden. *I can’t believe I’m writing this.*
You can watch it for yourself on the Madonna X Beeple Mother of Creation NFT page. But this is NSFW so click at your discretion.
What’s even weirder (really?!?) is that Madonna’s vagina is made even more realistic than her face, which has a plastic stiffness. We are informed that it is Madonna’s Vajayjay, scanned and modeled. There’s a message here somewhere but we’re looking for it like a vaginal escape.
There’s a reason, of course, as Madonna put it in a press release: “I wanted to explore the concept of creation, not just how a child enters the world through a woman’s vagina, but also the way an artist gives birth to creativity. ”
All three NFT video artworks will be auctioned today on the exclusive NFT SuperRare Marketplace. There’s a purpose behind the eco-vagina returned by Madonna, as the proceeds will be donated to three different charities. The beneficiaries will be The Voices of Children Foundation, which helps women in Ukraine; La Cité de la Joie is a leadership program for women in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo; finally, Black Mama’s Bail Out offers funds to bail out black mothers and caregivers in prison.
Okay, we’re mean, and it’s hard to really take offense to an NFT project that aims to do so much good. As with many Madonna projects, this Beeple NFT collab is grabbing our attention for all the wrong reasons in order to do something very good – donate to important charities.
We have known for some time that the future of NFTs could be with those holding uses as discussed in our NFT art and the future of NFTs with Bilali Mack and the speculation of an NFT crash also shows a bright future for projects that have a use; whether it’s creating video games and movies or raising money for good causes.
