Artist creates daytime fireworks exhibit in Qatar [VIDEO]

Daytime Fireworks Display in Qatar

The Chinese have been wowing us with their spectacular fireworks display for centuries, but a recent pyrotechnics show that took place in broad daylight in Doha, Qatar has taken their craft to a whole new level.

Cai Guo-Qiang, the New York-based artist that captivated international audiences with his fireworks exhibit at the opening ceremony of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, spent nearly two months in Qatar creating a series of works, which use explosives normally used by the military as anti-missile decoys.

The cost of the entire event hasn’t been revealed, but it was funded in full by the Qatar Museum Authority.
