The DAUGHTERS OF THE WIND OVERTURE story takes place in a coastal desert setting where we are introduced to our protagonist, an Emirati woman and her horse as she strives to make a difference in the world for future generations. The work depicts the story of the land, where not only has it been transformed by industry but where inspiration from the natural surroundings has brought us together to embrace a future of collaboration and community. The UAE is a home to all and it opens its arms wide to embrace and welcome the world.

The majority of the proceeds from the NFT drop and 50 for 50 series sale will go into the Pietra & Ella Theatre Production Shows L.L.C UAE company developing a Performing Arts Programme and other arts initiatives for young people in the region. This runs in parallel to their new Arab World musical show that will have a UAE residency, a world tour and a film musical, giving a voice to the culture globally and building bridges between nations. The lasting impact being to create a meaningful ecosystem, offering opportunities and contributing to the overall growth and legacy of the creative industry in the region.

An artists exploration of the Emirates

The paintings and NFT drop are the result of the exploration and discovery of each emirate through the artist’s eyes, but more importantly these paintings have a life and soul infused by Spira’s ability to inject her passion and love into the paintings.
The natural beauty of the UAE, which is perhaps less known, is in Spira’s opinion what adds the magic and really is the UAE’s backbone, beautifully juxtaposing the modernity achieved for the region. “It’s what has informed the past and present and will continue to inform the future”. In a world of fast paced technological advancements, nature connects us all be it looking up at the stars, the sea, or our interaction with animals. It’s our relationship to nature and to each other that grounds us.
