The 12 orig­i­nal works are also up for auc­tion and are be­ing sold to raise funds for In­spire. An ex­hi­bi­tion of the paint­ings is be­ing held at Hill­top Gar­dens in Triq, LInkwina, Naxxar be­tween 10 Novem­ber and 3 De­cem­ber. Dur­ing this time, the on­line auc­tion will also be open for bid­ding.
