TBT | Endometriosis and Veganism

Image contains a medium-dark brown wooden background. On the wood, there is a variety of fruit and vegetables. In the centre, there is a papaya and coming from the left and right of the fruit are two small stalks of a leafy green vegetable.

The whole image is meant to represent the female reproductive system.
