Qatar In Biggest Ever Daytime Fireworks Show

An awesome art display, billed as the biggest ever daytime fireworks show has taken place in Doha, the Qatari capital.

The event is the latest in a series by Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang, the artist who contributed to the opening firework ceremony of the Beijing Olympics.

The artist, who is based in New York, has spent nearly two months in Qatar creating a series of works, which use microchip-controlled explosives to form incredible designs and patterns explosives – normally used by the military as anti-missile decoys.

The cost of the display has not been revealed, but it was funded in full by the Qatar Museum Authority. Amazing 🙂
