Woman Uses Four Months’ Worth Of Her Menstrual Blood To Make Painting Of A Baby

Artist Timi Pali wanted to make an image which represents the importance and fragility of motherhood.

She used tampons to collect her blood and her fingers to paint the matter onto four individual canvases which were eventually placed together.



She told Mirror magazine,
“The focus is not on the blood, but the work has its message because of the menstrual flow. One drop of experiment and I realise the beauty of the pain, the value of the period, fertilising my whole being.”
“The periodic elimination of my ovum with my menstrual flow inspired me to give birth to something which has a biological end, and to create the start of the end.”

“Each month a woman has the chance to become pregnant, but with the menstrual flow the ovum is eliminated, and the chance to have a baby in not relevant at all.

Wow! How about the smell? …….. Ewww
