The "King David" light and sound show was powered by laser projectors that lit up the Citadel with 35,000 pixels at a brightness of 250,000 lumens.

The show also paid tribute to the works of great artists who captured the figure of Jerusalem's king, including Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Matisse and Chagall.
