The Story of Cinderella, All Told in Glass – Cinderella Castle’s Mosaic Mural

If you’ve taken the time to walk “inside” Cinderella Castle you’ve noticed the incredible mosaic tile murals depicting the story of Cinderella herself.

From AllEarsNet:

The five murals contain about 500 colors and a million pieces of glass, many of them fused with real silver and 14-karat gold. Smooth-faced Venetian glass and rough-surfaced smalti (enameled or glazed glass) traditionally used by Italian craftsman were incorporated into the design. It took a team of six people more than two years to complete the murals. Note that each of Cinderella’s wicked stepsisters has her own special facial tint. One sister is red in tone, to show that she is “red with rage,” while another is greenish (“green with envy”), as they both look on as Cinderella tries on the glass slipper — a perfect fit.

And the lived happily ever after
