Art in Crystallography

The American Crystallographic Association newsletter holds contests to showccase the crystallographic art of the associations members.

The entries show the crystallography and explain the process for creating the work.

The winner of the latest competition is "Blood 2,000,000X," a watercolor that reveals Y-shaped antibodies, cholesterol molecules, and other well-known compounds in the vicinity of a red blood cell.

The second place was a carving in walnut of "Cortisol".

Other entries included a "Polioviruis" sculpture and various protiens.
