The world's most expensive mural - containing $1 million in diamonds - is being displayed in Puerto Banús, Spain, in a celebration of summer.
Designed by "Queen of the World’s Most Expensive" Debbie Wingham, the "Million Euro Mural" features a million euros ($1,040,520) worth of diamonds.
The 40-foot long, 7-foot tall mural was created in partnership with the upscale Puerto Banús marina, with the diamonds on loan.
The original artworks will be sold off to benefit numerous charities, including human trafficking, families suffering from malnutrition, and the Ukraine Crisis.
Inspired by Banksy and Richard Hambelton, one of the main focal points of the mural is the silhouette of a woman wearing a backless dress with a diamond Chic Back and designer bag, as a nod to the fashionista crowd of the Spanish marina.
The artist also incorporated The Beatles, with an abstract painting of Abbey Road and a yellow submarine, since John Lennon wrote numerous songs in the region.
Another silhouette wears a Chic Back, featuring emerald and diamonds, valued at €8,000 ($8,327).
She carries a bag adorned with a champagne diamond valued at €10,000 ($10,409) and wears a Cartier chain with emeralds and diamonds, valued at €50,000 ($52,045).
The right side of the mural features a LaFerrari, with a series of pampered pooches, rocking dog collars featuring three, 2-carat pink diamonds that are €50,000 ($52,045) each.
At the heart of the piece is an oil painting by Debbie of Puerto Banús in a 100-year-old frame accentuated with eight, 3-carat white diamonds, valued at €105,000 ($109,295) each.
For security reasons, the diamonds were replaced with lab diamonds after the May 12 launch event.
Debbie said: “The mural had to be not only enchanting and embody subtle nautical themes reaffirming the marina location, but it needed to be an incredible background for everyone to visit.
“It needed to be more than a mural, it needed to be an experience.”
The visuals were hand painted before being digitally rendered and placed on a UVA-protected metal finish to better withstand the Spanish sun.
Dubbed "Queen of the World’s Most Expensive," Debbie revealed a $600k diamond-drenched art piece with an NFT this Valentine’s Day and the "world’s most expensive Advent calendar"- valued at $10,368,423 - last December.
The 'Million Euro Mural launched on May 12 and will be on display until mid-August.
