This is the Lucia, the pear cut diamond made of oil on canvas
by talented artist Angie Crabtree.
We love how this girl masters the art of diamond shaping
her paintings with such detail.
Angie has based her art on diamond facets, enlarging them by 1000. The Californian artist has been mezmerised by the gem since the age of 4,

Celebrities love his work, Christina Aguilera owns three works by Banksy and Angelina Jolie spent a $307,000 on Banksy pieces in 2006.His collaboration with Damien Hirst, ‘Keeping it Spotless’, sold for over $1.8 million at auction in 2008.
His documentary, Exit Through the Gift Shop made more than $5,308,618 at the US box office. He once asked to be paid only £1 to install a graffiti. One of his works – ‘This looks a bit like an elephant’ – accidentally got a homeless man evicted from his squat. When Banksy found out, he gave the man enough money to live on for a year to make up for it. He created ‘Pest Control,’ a group of experts who can tell a Banksy fake from the genuine article.
One of our favourite pieces is ‘A girl Holds a Diamond’ , made in Detroit.
