Artist and designer Nina Levett of Austria created a series of modular wallpaper paintings which feature sperm. She says "The sperm represents the beginning of the life of my children. The best thing I have accomplished in my life so far!"

There are different versions. One shows the sperm and egg at the moment of fertilization. Another shows sperm swimming away from the egg which the artist says is "an allegory to the difficulty of finding the right man for my life."

She is photographed here with a dress print like that of her sperm pictures. Her wallpaper paintings can be customised as either wallpaper, painting on MDF board, or printed on fabric, paper and other media.
