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:
