Insane Video Mapping Show Celebrates the Prague Astronomical Clock’s 600th Anniversary

The Prague Orloj is an elaborate astronomical clock constructed in 1410. It has animated statues, a calendar and a zodiacal ring with moving Sun and Moon. This video mapping show to celebrate its 600th anniversary comes via The Daily Grail:

A YouTube commenter outlines some of the history portrayed in the show:

05:04 The Symbol of Bohemia and the Czech lands – The two tailed Lion bearing the crown of Charles the 4th as the Czech King and Holy Roman Emperor – uplifting Prague to be the jewel that it is today

06:40 after much turmoil. The old town was the place where 27 Czech protestant leaders were executed in 1621 by the Catholic Ferdinand the 2

07:23 The 12 apostles that come out every hour, 24/7 in all seasons

08:15 Serious damage in 1945 from Prague Uprising by Germans

    wow, that was an incredible display. A 600 year old clock deserves that kind of recognition but I’m blown away by the work people put into it. Just awesome.
