Inspiration - Mosaics

There is not always the time to make art, but that doesn't mean one's artistic endeavors are not functioning, for while there may not be the time to make art, there is almost always the time to be inspired, to store the inspiration for another time, to admire the creativity and inspiration of others.

And at Disney World, this comes in droves.

Here are a few shots of the magnificent mosaics in the archway of Cinderella's Castle at the Magic Kingdom in Disney World.

Imagine not only the placement of every tiny tessera, but the design, the selection of color, the incorporation of perspective, not only to tell a story, but to instill beauty in an area that would be sufficient undecorated as an archway between Main Street and Fantasyland.

Thank you, Walt, for your unending genius and inspiration.
