Rio 2016 – Olympic Butterflies


During the Olympic Games until the last Sunday (14), at 7 on the dot, the Hotel Copacabana Palace has had a cloud of butterflies projected onto its façade. The butterflies are designed with the flags of all the countries participating in the Games, and classical music is played to coincide with the projection. The amazing light show is a creation of Icelandic artist Kristjana S. Williams and has been fascinating passers-by. It lasts 10 minutes and became an attraction, attracting many people who want to see the beautiful butterflies.
