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 commissioned works by Damien Hirst (2005 – Sold Out), Yinka Shonibare, MBE, (2007) and Ron Arad (2008), a new work by Los Angeles and Durban-based artist Liza Lou was created in 2010 to honor the Museum's 45th birthday and the major renewal of its campus.
