Now, the individual works of art, by 50 international artists and Leonard Nimoy himself will be up for auction in the Heritage Auctions’ Entertainment & Movie Memorabilia Auction.

According to Nerdist, Nimoy’s piece, titled “Hand in Vulcan Gesture” was submitted to the show just months before he died in 2015.

“This is the first time a body of work like this has ever been offered at auction at one time,” said Giles Moon, Entertainment Consignment Director at Heritage Auctions. “The artworks are marvelous and truly capture how Star Trek’s television programs and films have influenced generations of artists around the world.”
