A mesmerizing display of lights never ceases to be a grandiose way to commemorate an Anniversary, and the San Francisco-based agency Obscura Digital knows how to put up a good one. In order to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the United Arab Emirates National Day, the company orchestrate a magnificent show with the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque as a protagonist.

Titled the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Projections Project, this spectacle was created to honor the history of Abu Dhab. The agency used three-dimension mapping to present a mind-blowing display that consisted of lighting up the architectural wonder with gorgeous floral and geometrical designs. To majestically illuminate every corner of the mosque, including its four curved minarets and 12 domes, Obscura Digital employed 44 projectors.
