Disney - Snow White Grotto - B & W (Explored)

See where this picture was taken. [?]

 

Take a stroll along the winding paths around Sleeping Beauty Castle and you might stumble upon Snow White Grotto. The centerpiece of this attraction is a wishing well where Snow White's voice can be heard singing similarly to the wishing well scene in the original full length animated feature. But look across the water up into the "forest" and you'll spot these marble statues of Snow White and the seven dwarfs - along with a few of Snow White's forest friends. The marble statuettes were sent to Disneyland anonymously from Italy in 1961. The statues were modeled after soaps and Snow White was only slightly taller than the dwarfs, which is why forced perspective is used in the scene. Snow White is placed by herself at the top above all the dwarfs.
