A series of close-ups of the female reproductive organs from different angles stole the show as the most bold and avant-garde.
The hard-core snapshots are mirror reflections of the artist's body, and have provoked jitters from viewers.
Pony-tailed 22-year-old Chengdu Art Academy sophomore, Wang Guiquan, smiled and explained her shocking work, saying, "Actually, it's very simple. At first, I only wanted to see what I really look like in the mirror."
