Caption: Glass sculpture of a fictional virus. This sculpture was designed by the British artist Luke Jerram in consultation with virologists and created in collaboration with glass blowers. It features a transparent outer layer, which represents the outer membrane of the virus, and an opaque inner section, which represents the nucleocapsid protein and RNA. Structures protruding from the outer layer represent surface proteins.
