Dilara Kazimova, who is representing Azerbaijan in the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen has created a very unique souvenir – a 20cm high, 100% accurate copy of herself created with a 3D printer.

The model, which is entirely unique, will be auctioned on eBay to raise money for Danish animal shelter Dyreværnets, just outside of Copenhagen. Dilara, along with Hungarian entrant András Kállay-Saunders, visited the shelter earlier this week. 

After her visit, Dilara said, a day in the animal shelter was very emotional to me. I wanted to take all animals home. But now, I’m happy that with this auction, I can contribute to the animal shelter.

You can see a video of their visit below.

Dilara is an activist for animal protection in her home city of Baku. Before coming to Copenhagen, she released a range of merchandise where the profits were given to Azerbaijani animal welfare organisations. She owns both a dog and a cat, and takes part in charity events that benefit animal rights causes.

Dilara will perform her song Start a fire in the first semi-final on 6 May.
