Luke Jerram has created a series of surprisingly beautiful sculptures of some of man’s deadliest enemies - including the swine flu virus.

By consulting with University of Bristol virologists and using photographs and models, Luke Jerram managed to create a lifelike representation of these microscopic killers. Some of the viruses and bacteria included in the collection are HIV, Smallpox, E-Coli, SARS and HIN1, which is more popularly known as swine flu.

The sculptures will be presented at the Virology exhibition which will be displayed at The Smithfield Gallery in London between Sept. 21 and Oct. 3.
