Presenting the Emirates ‘Bling’ 777. Image created by Sara Shakeel

This dazzling plane is too good to be true

The world went crazy for this photo of an Emirates plane covered in jewels over the weekend. But all is not as it seems.


It looks like Emirates has decked this Boeing 777 out with diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires. But don’t be fooled.

The clue is in the caption. 

“Image created by”. 

Yes, it is an image. An artwork.

Award-winning crystal artist Sara Shakeel created the image and posted on her Instagram account.

Here is the original image. 

All the attention has boosted Sara’s social media profile. 

We certainly love her work.
