If you're a Double Helix Fan Club member, but can't make it to Japan to clone your face, and find the prospect of being mug-melded with your sister a little disturbing, check out this subtler artistic representation of your DNA. DNA portraits map a portion of their subjects' unique genetic code, and print it in any of 25 custom color combinations on a canvas ready for framing and proud display.

After placing your order, DNA 11 will send you a kit for collecting and snail mailing DNA from the cells inside your cheek. Upon receipt, the company unlocks your coded flesh, and creates an enchanting print according to your size and color specifications. The $399 price is for a single person's DNA projection on a 24" x 36" canvas. Other options include prints with separate blocks for couples' or families' codes, as well as a smaller desktop, and two larger size options. Drama-Inducing Gift Idea Alert! Send in a Q-Tip of your favorite intelligent design advocate's genetic matter, along with a swab from one of the gorillas at the local zoo, have a tandem portrait made, and challenge your man to tell you which is which.

Turnaround time is approximately 6 to 7 weeks from the date of cheek matter receipt, and a digital copy of each portrait, along with a certificate of authenticity, is shipped with the order. For answers to additional anticipated inquiries, check out DNA 11's FAQ page.
