“The Miraculous Journey” By Damien Hirst

A series of fourteen monumental bronze sculptures chronicling the gestation of a fetus inside a womb, from conception to birth, is one of the most daring sculptures ever to be commissioned and installed in a region that’s historically known for his archaic laws and the suppression of women.

Titled “The Miraculous Journey”, the sculptures sit outside the Sidra Medical Centre dedicated to women and children that opened this week in Doha, Qatar. The sculptures were originally installed in 2013 but was quickly covered from public view following an outcry on social media. It was unveiled recently for the hospital’s official inauguration.
