Did you know? The beautiful mosaics in Cinderella’s Castle were designed by Disney artist Dorothea Redmond and crafted by famed mosaicist Hanns-Joachim Scharff. No one has counted the pieces of Italian glass – a press release says “hundreds of thousands.” Some were fused with silver and 14-karat gold. The smallest pieces were the size of the head of a tack.
Special thanks to my friend Melissa from Disney on Wheels for sharing these beautiful pictures!
