Compromising of nearly 30 paintings made with gunpowder; eight of them ignited on-site at the Salón de Reinos. Also on view are an oil and an acrylic created at the start of his activities as a painter; and various sketches and drawings.

Widely illustrated with works from all periods and techniques of the artist, this book dedicates much of its pages to illustrate the daily work of Cai Guo-Qiang at the Museo del Prado, as a "live" photographic record of his creative process. This is the first book in Spanish that shows how the Chinese artist works.
