‘Murmuration (Landscape)’ by Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang: 10,000 porcelain birds suspended from the ceiling of Australia’s National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne.

Designed as a companion piece to a display of warrior figures from the Terracotta Army also on display at the gallery, the flock – each bird smudged with gunpowder – is arranged to create a 3D impression of a calligraphic drawing of Mount Li, where the tomb of the ancient warriors was located.
