Thanks to Carl Zimmer for posting a link on his Facebook page to this.

An artist by the name Luke Jerram has a website/project devoted to glass sculptures based on microbiology. The most beautiful one for me is the HIV sculpture. It’s frighteningly disconcerting to see, and I think that’s some of its appeal.
