(Looking Through The) Stained Glass Windows

Returning to my post from a few days ago, I wanted to show you round the remainder of La Galerie de la Belle au Bois Dormant. I'm sorry I can't write very much tonight, but I've just returned from my Gaelic class - yes, I do things outside of the Disney's rare though!
I love this above tapestry, showing the three Fairies. I think it's beautiful and I love the colour and detail of it.
The above stained glass window shows Prince Phillip battling his way to the Princess Aurora, while the following tapestry shows the dragon fight between Maleficent (as a dragon) and Prince Phillip. A nice little fact relating to this tapestry: when Imagineer Tony Baxter saw this piece, he enquired about having a second one reproduced for himself - but the cost changed his mind. However, at a celebration for the completion of the park, then EuroDisney, he received a second version of the above tapestry as a gift from his team! Isn't that a nice little story?

This final window is another of my favourites, showing Sleeping Beauty being awoken by a kiss from her Prince...doesn't it make you all feel warm and fuzzy inside? I know it does to me...well, I am a Princess, after all!
