This model of SARS Cov-2– COVID-19 was commissioned 8 weeks before the pandemic by a university in America to reflect their current and future research, and its focus on solving global challenges. 

An edition of 5 of the artworks were then made and sold to museums and private collectors, with all profits going to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) who are assisting developing countries deal with the fallout of the pandemic. Since this first edition was made, a larger version of SARS CoV-2 has been created, and sculptures of the Oxford AstraZeneca Vaccine. Through the sale of these works, so far over £55,000 has been raised for MSF.
