Chinese artist Cai Guoqiang's Gun Powder work Eagle Landing on the Pine Branch is displayed inside the Atrium Office building of the new US Embassy compound in Beijing, August 5, 2008. The motifs of eagle and pine trees were chosen for their symbolic value in both China and the United States, representing the friendship and cooperation between the two countries. Cai Guoqiang, trained in stage design at the Shanghai Drama Institute, is renowned for his gunpowder works on paper and is one of the major stage designers for the Closing Ceremony of the upcoming Beijing Olympic Games.
