As reported by Grace Dickinson for The Inquirer at Philly.com, this statuesque sculpture of Cinderella Castle is constructed from more than 7,000 all-natural corks, and features three stories of details includes turrets, stairways, and an entryway with a patterned floor.

This Cinderella Castle also features lighting wired into it to help illuminate its spires and interior walls, all decorated with sheets of hand-painted Plexiglass. The castle’s windows give a glimpse of classic Disney characters including Mickey Mouse, the Seven Dwarfs, and of course, Cinderella.

“I like the concept of Disney World, where people go and enjoy themselves. The adults become children, and the children just eat it all up,” said Deuschle. “Walt Disney had a vision that goes beyond our comprehension, and I simply wanted to create something with it that I could share with others.”
