An explosive pyrotechnic device used for aesthetic, cultural, and universal celebrations, fireworks are without a doubt an awe-inspiring invention. The first documented explosions took place in seventh-century China. Since then, they have trickled through societies and time, illuminating the dark sky and spreading the metaphorical light through smiles on their beholders’ faces.

Whether they’re for festivities, birthdays, independence, or holidays, fireworks are a global expression of happiness. PicsArtists have brought together skies full of beautiful fireworks, from different times and countries, creating a photo gallery of firework images universally explosive in color, excitement, and illumination.
