Royal Wood Music Video Features A Gorgeous Stop-Motion Survey Of The Universe (VIDEO)

Need a reason to marvel at how vast and beautiful our universe is? Adam Makarenko's new video for the Canadian singer-songwriter Royal Wood should do the trick.

The gorgeous stop-motion creation for the song "The Glory" is a survey of the natural world, from the petals of a flower to the shooting stars of far off galaxies. The video combines homemade special effects, created using miniature replicas, with the romantic lyrics of the Canadian musician, straight off his 2012 album, "We Were Born to Glory."

You can watch the making of the video here.
