An artist has created a one-of-a-kind interactive art piece encrusted in a £1.2 million diamond frame to celebrate Eid next week.

Known for her elaborate and unique creations, Debbie Wingham wanted to capture the spirit of Eid whilst combining her love for one of her favourite cities, Dubai.

Wingham, who is also known around the world for incorporating diamonds into her work, presented them in this piece in the form of a luxury diamond frame.

More than 3,000 flawless VVS1 hand-cut solitaire pointer diamonds were used in a frame that accentuates the outline of the iconic Dubai skyline - with the gemstones valued at just over £1.2 million.

The innovative art piece took more than three months to make and features more than 1,000 coloured LED lights. The piece plays an elaborate visual and sound firework display as the painting is approached, bringing a visual sensory element.

The original artwork has also secured its place on the Metaverse as it evolved into a digital art piece and was minted as one of the first ever sensory NFTs.

When asked why Eid became the subject of her current works, Wingham said: "I like to share culture and broaden the horizons of people using my artistic flair and one of the few times in my life I experienced such a sensational pyrotechnics display was to mark the end of Ramadan and the beginning of Eid and I knew one day I would create that scene for others to see."

The interactive art piece will be on display until 1 June at Masterpiece Art in Dubai.
