The organization, which manages the historic landmark of Stonehenge, paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II on the occasion of her 70th birthday on the British throne, projecting portraits of her on the famous megalithic structure, UPI reported.

“We brought together two British icons to celebrate the platinum anniversary. We projected eight portraits of Queen Elizabeth II on Stonehenge. Each is from a different decade of her reign,” English Heritage said in a statement posted on Twitter.

The organization shares a video showing how the project was implemented.

Among the eight portraits projected on Stonehenge is that of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953. Others depict Her Majesty in a yellow dress from her visit to Mexico in 1975, on a corgit ride, at the Windsor Horse Racing.

“We wanted to show different aspects of the queen – her personality, her interests and really demonstrate how special a lady she is,” said English Heritage.

Elizabeth II, who turned 96 on April 21, ascended the throne on February 6, 1952, after the death of her father, King George VI. The date marks the beginning of her record for British monarchy. Her coronation was on June 2, 1953.
