Yoni-creator, (Yoni: sacred place of the female genitals, creator, in English creator), is a vending machine of eggs or balls with surprises, which are often found in many establishments. Turning it into a vending machine for women artists' artworks to get the job spreading, turned this gadget into Yoni-creator, or female creative genitals (the Hindu version of Pussy). The machine contains the work of female artists of four generations, each piece of work in that ball-egg, with an image and a small biography.
