Ever Seen a Stairway to Heaven? Well, This Artist Created One
When Cai Guo-Qiang was growing up in a rural Chinese fishing village, he always looked at the stars and wondered how to communicate with the rest of the world. After becoming an artist, he imagined building a stairway to heaven, though 20 years of failed attempts stood in his way. Determined to succeed, a large team set up this fireworks masterpiece, and in 2015, on his fourth attempt in 21 years, this incredible art exhibit came to life.
