Woman paints picture of baby using only her period blood


A woman has used nine months’ worth of period blood to create this painting of a baby.
Using just her fingers and used tampons to create the masterpiece, artist Timi Páll created one canvas every month.
After nine months, the canvases slotted together to create her finished piece ‘The Diary of My Period’.

Ms Páll, from Oradea, Romania, shared pictures of her painting on Facebook saying she had been inspired to paint with her period blood after realising the ‘value of her period.’
The graphic designer wrote: ‘One drop of experiment and I realize the beauty of the pain, the value of the period, fertilizing 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.’
She added: ‘I feel that this artwork has a mission, even if it’s not able to see, to talk, or to breathe but maybe the audience will see, talk and breath instead of this little creature.’

And Ms Páll isn’t the first woman to have the idea to use her menstrual blood as paint.
Jess Cummin was a student at the prestigious Glasgow School of Art and Design. She started using hers to create paintings in late 2015.
She paints by collecting her menstrual blood on a brush or using tampons.
‘I think people think it’s gross but it’s not,’ she previously told Femail.
‘Other people use oils or charcoal – this is no different.’
