Fragment of 3D-mapping video projection on facade of the Central Pavilion “House of Nations of Russia” with gilded statues of beautiful fountain “Friendship of People” at VDNKh (Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy) at the 6th International Festival "Circle of Light" 2016 in Moscow. The sign in Russian “Union of Soviet Socialist Republics” highlighted in purple and white colors on the building.

The fountain “Friendship of Nations” was created at VDNKh in 1954. It was meant to become one of the main symbols of the exhibition. However, it became the symbol which reflects the celebration and high spirits associated with the victory in the WWII, embodying the national dream of prosperity in the whole world. The shining even at night gold-plated female figures symbolize all republics of USSR. The girls dressed in national costumes of each republic of Soviet Union have gathered around the fountain in a circle dance called in Russia “khorovod”.
