Consisting of three computer-animated videos titled “Mother of Nature”, “Mother of Evolution” and “Mother of Technology”, each entry in the project features an explicit nude representation of Madonna, with trees, butterflies and robotic caterpillars emerging from her vagina.
“I’m doing what women have been doing since the dawn of time, which is giving birth. But on a more existential level, I am giving birth to art and creativity and we would be lost without both,” the singer said in a video call with Beeple.
“We wanted to create something that is absolutely and utterly connected to creation and motherhood,” added Madonna. “I think it’s really important for people to know that a lot of thought and conversation went into making these videos.”
The three videos are each being auctioned as NFTs, with the highest bid currently being valued at over $45,000.
“My journey through life as a woman is like that of a tree. Starting with a small seed, always pushing against the resistance of the earth. The endless weight of gravity,” said Madonna in the voiceover for the video “Mother of Nature.”

In another behind-the-scenes conversation with Beeple, the singer jokes about the “Mother of Technology” video, “It’s not often that a robotic centipede crawls out of my vagina.”
