Stunning glass sculptures representing deadly viruses! (11 pics)

Posted in Pictures   9 Sep 2009   / 9987 views

Artist Luke Jerram has created some of the world’s deadliest viruses and bacteria in glass for his Viral Sculptures exhibition which will be held in London at The Smithfield Gallery, from the 22nd of September to the 3rd of October. He made those masterpieces with the help of virologists and scientific photographs and the help of a team of glassblowers.
We often see pictures of viruses and bacteria in colors but they are actually transparent, so Luke Jerram created each virus and bacterium in its natural colorness state.
Take a look at his impressive and very original work inside the post.

E.coli is NOT a virus, is a bacteria, you even say it!!!
viruses and bacteria are two complete different things...a virus needs a host to reproduce, without a host, it wont be able to reproduce, while bacteria can do it on their own, among other differences

"...some of the world’s deadliest viruses and bacteria in glass..."
read the text first
It's not written in the title cause it would be too long and most of them are viruses, but it is explained in the text...
