The company says that each piece is expertly hand-crafted, individually numbered and reproduced on limited edition Giclée prints and each comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Pleased with the quality of work produced by the company, Chopra said: "Sexual energy is the primal energy of the Universe. It is the principle fuel behind all of our creativity that gives rise to poetry, music, art, and science.
"The images created by artists at our studio reflect these qualities naturally and authentically and I am thrilled that more of the world will now see them."
Tim Bennett, managing director of ID-Wall said: "We are honoured to be working with Deepak and the Virgin Comics team (publishers of Chopra's book). This arrangement allows ID-Wall to supply and service fine art aficionados worldwide with this unique range of beautiful prints.
