Fireworks "A stairway to heaven" by Cai Guoqiang

Great pyrotechnic art work by Chinese artist Cai Guoqiang in this 'Stairway to Heaven' footage captured in China...

In the early hours of June 15, 2015, "A stairway to heaven" lights its way to the heavens, but we'd be careful climbing this ladder as it is made of fireworks and is held up by a balloon.
Cai, an artist who often works with gunpowder, is said to have come up with the idea for this spectacle some twenty years ago. Cai had already attempted to complete this task on several occasions but never fully succeeded until recently. The occasion, Cai said, is for his grandmother who 'was born in a small fishing village in Quanzhou and sold fish to help her grandson realise his artistic dream,' the artist revealed.
