A woman meticulously collected the blood from her menstrual cycle for four months to make a painting.

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.

Speaking to Mirror Online, she said: "The focus is not on the blood, but the work has it's message because of the menstrual flow.

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.

My concept with this elimination of the ovum, through the menstrual blood I gave birth to an artwork during these nine months and actually I created a "start of the end..." and an artwork was born, which illustrates a baby."

Explaining the piece in more detail on her website, Timi 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."
