name this shape

In Her Pants

Do you know what that shape is?  Before coming across this article i didn't know what it was, either.  This shape is a human clitoris.  If you picture a clitoris as a simple nub, you are in agreement with popular belief.  You are also wrong.  Anatomy textbooks illustrate the clitoris to be one tenth of its actual size.  This new image comes to us from studies conducted in the 90's using an MRI scanner.  You may ask why it took so long for us to map the clitoris, but this is only a rediscovery.  Though we have had correct information about the anatomy of the clitoris released in reports dating back to the 1840's, textbooks have ignored this information.  The Seattle artist Lynn Schirmer's goal is to put this image everywhere she can and make sure that it is known.
