SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (SBS/CNN) - One of the world's most iconic buildings is putting on a light show.

The Sydney Opera House will display indigenous art every sunset in a light show lasting about seven minutes.

The impressive light show launched last week as a reminder of Australia's rich history and vibrant First Nations culture.

The projections will become a staple of Sydney's skyline every night for a year.

The light show's launch coincides with Australians’ 1967 decision, 50 years ago, to count Aboriginal Australians in the census.
