Fourteen giant bronze sculptures by British artist Damien Hirst graphically charting the moment of conception to birth greet patients arriving at an $8-billion hospital in Gulf state Qatar. The vast open-air installation, named "The Miraculous Journey", shows a foetus growing in the womb and culminates with a 14-metre (46-feet) of a naked baby just after birth.
