Stairway to Heaven (Chinese Edition)

Probably not what Jacob –or Robert Plant– had in mind, but still a beautiful spectacle: Chinese artist Cai Guoqiang created this fiery Sky Ladder by using pyrotechnics and holding them in the air with a balloon.

The installation was realized at Huiyu Island Harbor on June 15th 2015 at 4:49 am, as a way to celebrate his grandmother’s 100th birthday.

Guoqiang was the same artist who designed the fireworks for the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics, in 2008.
