The artist who famous for the painting of Africa motif has received the task to decorate the German-made sedan interior. Almost all of the usual wood panel embedded on the interior of BMW 7 Series is replaced by using her homemade motif. Remarkably, the 81-year old female artist was painting all interior panels by hand. She did not use a brush like most painters, but using the chicken feathers.

"The results of this work made me see almost all over the world and visited many places. I have painted many walls, objects, as well as the museums. My heart is happy when BMW asked me to paint again in their products," she said as quoted of Carscoops on Friday, September 9, 2016.

Although created manually, the Esther's work did not leave the luxury impression of BMW 740 Li. And BMW combines interior panel with ivory white with black combinations the Alcantra leather are also sewn manually.

At first glance no different from the Esther's BMW 740 Li exterior with the standard version. Only visible body is painted in metallic gray, using the rim diameter of 20 inches, with a combination of chrome in some parts.
Before entrusted to paint the interior of the BMW 7 Series, Esther Mahlangu's been known to paint a BMW 525i. Not only the body, wheels and mirrors are also painted by using the motif that has become her hallmark. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS]
