In 2005, the Israel Museum's International Council Co-Chair, Marion Naggar, initiated a series of special commissions by cutting-edge artists to be sold in exclusive limited editions for the benefit of the Museum. Following the success of the commissioned works by Damien Hirst (2005 – Sold Out), Yinka Shonibare, MBE, (2007), Ron Arad (2008), Liza Lou (2010), and William Kentridge (2011), a new work by Arik Levy is now being presented.
