Sure there’s no point in crying over spilt milk, but you might shed a tear or two if you watched a AU$90,000 glass castle crash to the ground.
Two children who were playing chase while visiting the Shanghai Museum of Glass in China knocked over the world’s biggest glass castle, after climbing into a fenced-off area.
The stunning Disney Cinderella Castle – which was built with 30,000 parts – came crashing to the ground after the pair bumped into the display cabinet.
The glass exhibit, which was modelled on the Shanghai Disneyland Castle, took Spanish-American artists, brothers Tomas and Alfonso Arribas, more than 500 hours to make the masterpiece.
According to The Sun, glass company Arribas Brothers has been informed but no artists are able to go to China to repair the artwork because of the coronavirus pandemic, the museum said.
The castle weighed around 60kg in total, and was part of the museum’s permanent collection. It is understood the main spire was broken and other sections of the castle suffered various degrees of damage – but the museum has not revealed the exact cost of the broken exhibit.
