Qatar unveils Hirst's 'Miraculous Journey'

A handout picture released by QMA & SCIENCE LTD shows the last statue in a series of sculptures titled "The Miraculous Journey" by British artist Damien Hirst that were installed earlier in the week at the entrance to the Sidra Medical and Research Center in Doha on October 8, 2013 following the unveiling of his latest work in the Qatari capital. Commissioned by Qatar's royal family - a long standing collector - for a reported 20 million dollars, the installation of artworks depicting the human form, which is banned under some interpretation of Islam, has caused controversy amongst conservative Muslims.
