Patients visiting a $8bn (£6bn) hospital in Qatar are welcomed by 14 huge bronze sculptures that graphically chart the growth of a baby, from conception to birth. Created by British artist Damien Hirst, The Miraculous Journey culminates with a 14-metre (46ft) statue of a newborn. The foetus sculptures sit outside the entrance of Doha's new Sidra medicine hospital. They were originally unveiled in 2013 but have been covered up until the hospital’s offical opening this week.
